Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Aerospace systems are genuine mechatronic artifacts characterized by the synergistic integration of their mechanical, electromechanical, and electronic components, as well as built-in informational constituents in the form of onboard computers, microprocessors and microcontrollers. Design of such systems is challenging, as the conventional decoupled or loosely-coupled approaches can hardly provide optimal or even sub-optimal solutions.

This special issue presents feature papers, in the form of original research articles as well as comprehensive state-of-the-art surveys, on recent scientific and technological advancements of systematic frameworks and architectures for the concurrent, detail-level engineering of aerospace systems, from conception to configuration to integration to realization and implementation. The topics include, but not limited to, application of mechatronics methodologies to aerospace systems, concurrent engineering of aeronautical and astronautical systems, aerospace systems miniaturization, multidisciplinary design optimization of aerospace systems, design and development of unmanned aerial vehicles, space manipulators and planetary rovers, aerospace systems formation dynamics and control, etc.

Only submissions with a high caliber will be selected for open-access publication in the special issue, through a careful peer-review process on the condition of no valid rejection report from any reviewer.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
