While the usage of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), such as GPS/Galileo/GLONASS/BeiDou is ubiquitous and affords very high accuracy to an end user at a reasonable cost, there are still scenarios where these services may be unavailable, or compromised. Example may include navigation in underground environments, urban canyons or indoor locations with intermittent satellite signal reception, or situations when these signals are intentionally or unintentionally interfered with. Denial of positioning service in these circumstances may prove critical and prompt resorting to an entirely different technology. Radar sensors enjoy the benefit of being an all-weather/all-time instrument that potentially can provide both ranging and azimuthal resolution on a par with satellite navigation systems. Being an active sensor, a radar does not depend on any external source of signals and can employ signal diversity to avoid RF interference or jamming. These advantages and functionalities can be translated into a navigation/positioning alternative technology in GNSS-denied environments. We seek scientific contributions exploring this potential and describing systems, methods and/or propositions of framework for radar-aided/assisted navigation and positioning.

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.
