The development of the uses of microelectronic circuits, also called avionics, on board aircrafts and spacecrafts has been gaining momentum in recent years. These advanced systems perform various functions, including communication, navigation, flight control, display systems, flight management, etc. There is a great need for advanced avionics in civil, military and space systems. In space, heavy ions, protons, even electrons issued from cosmic rays, solar flares, radiation belts are strong constraints for the reliability (especially Single Event Effects (SEE)) of avionics during a space mission. In the Earth’s atmosphere, primary comic rays interact with the nuclei of atmospheric gases, creating cascades of secondary particles including neutrons, protons, pions, and muons. In addition to space applications, and because of the strong integration of technologies used for microelectronics circuits, SEE risks are a growing concern for atmospheric and ground applications.
This Special Issue on "Single Event Effects Prediction in Avionics"; will solicit review and original articles on the developments of SEE modeling and prediction methodologies that tackle this important topic. In order to provide a dedicated focus, articles that address the evaluation of the practical issues, such as SEE sensitivity trends with technology roadmaps, on-board testing, and prediction tools for hardening through design, are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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 1000 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.
