Radar has been an important sensor for aerospace since World War II. Today we are entering the next generation of airspace management and next generation of the users of airspace. We also have new challenges and threats in the domestic and international airspace. For example, the proliferation of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), especially small-medium UAS, demand that we have new capabilities in radar systems, including ground-based, marine, and airborne. New sources of radar clutter, such as wind farms, also require us to enhance our radar architectures and processing algorithms. New devices, components and fabrication technologies, are enabling radar to better serve aerospace applications. We have an exciting opportunity to capture the front line of these innovations in this Special Issue of Aerospace.
This Special Issue will focus on novel concepts, technologies and applications of radar in aerospace. A preliminary list of such areas includes: (1) Radar for next generation air-traffic management and monitoring, (2) Intelligent algorithms in airborne and spaceborne radars, especially algorithms based on machine intelligence. (3) Sense and Avoid (SAA) radar concepts and developments, including both ground and airborne systems. (4) Radar for detection, classification and monitoring of different types of hazards in the airspace, including both natural (weather hazards, birds) and man-made (collision air-traffic, uncontrolled drones, and wake vortices), especially radars using intelligent processing algorithms for these hazards. (5) New architectures, system components (such as antennae) and cognitive technologies that support radar-sensing improvements.

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.
