The recent development of new Global Navigation Satellite Navigation Systems, such as the European Galileo and the modernization of Global positioning system, GLONASS, is boosting new applications that range from classical navigation services, to a plethora of new fields that are using GNSS signals for purposes other than positioning. New applications to timing services, as well as the use of GNSS signals for scientific applications, such as ionospheric tomography, are becoming popular and new services are being deployed in these new application fields.
Nevertheless, all these new applications share classical positioning techniques and advanced signal processing algorithms, starting from weak received signals, through tailored receivers and processors, that are able to denoise, extract features, mitigate disturbances and interference, and retrieve timing information.
This Special Issue aims at collecting relevant papers describing advanced signal processing algorithms that are being developed to process the GNSS signals, not only for the classical positioning applications, but also for other fields such as timing and remote sensing.
Original processing architecture, low complexity implementation strategies, feature extraction algorithms, and machine learning approaches fall within the field of interest of this Special Issue. Digital signal processing algorithms acting along the processing chain will be considered, as they can address raw signal samples, processed signals, post-correlation values, raw and corrected pseudoranges, and positioning solutions.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
