Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The increasing developments in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) platforms and associated sensing technologies, adapted to these platforms, offer a broad range of solutions for different applications related to the acquisition of information about objects, structures or phenomenon at the Earth level, based on observations on the surface seas and oceans and in the atmosphere. The cost-effectiveness compared to manned vehicles makes them attractive, especially considering that UAVs can be equipped with several onboard sensors, including optical and hyperspectral camera-based, Laser, SAR, IMU, GPS among others. Additionally, the increasing technology in communication systems represents a challenge, where fleets of UAVs can collaborate for specific applications. Collaboration is not only limited to UAVs but also to different unmanned or manned ground or marine platforms. The huge amount of data, provided by UAVs, represents a new challenge regarding developments of processing, storage and transmission techniques, where the confluence of multidisciplinary technologies is always welcome. Real and simulated approaches are to be considered.

This special issue will publish papers that address these issues from a broad variety of perspectives. Topics include, but not limited, to:

  • UAV systems and autonomy: planes, helicopters, drones
  • sensors onboard UAVs: capabilities and technologies
  • data processing from UAVs: artificial intelligence and data mining based strategies
  • UAV onboard data storage, transmission and retrieval
  • communications between UAVs and other systems: wireless, optical
  • collaborative strategies and mechanisms between UAVs and other systems: hardware/software architectures including multi-agent systems, protocols and strategies to work together
  • UAV applications: agriculture and forestry; humanitarian localization and rescue; security and monitoring surveillance; target tracking including atmospheric phenomena; monitoring of chemical, biological or natural disasters; fire or flooding prevention and early intervention; volcanic activity, earthquake or tsunami early detection; environmental monitoring such as pollution, micro-climates, land use, land cover, change detection; telemetry; 3D terrain and object reconstruction; atmospheric forecast
