Special Issue Information
Micro power technology has great potential to be enabled in space propulsion systems, i.e., in primary propulsion as well as precision pointing and orbital maneuvering. Moreover, micro power systems enable sensors and actuators, which can be easily integrated to form intelligent onboard systems for both micro unmanned air vehicles and small satellite platforms. These advancements are the result of significant experimental and modeling efforts, as well as technology demonstration missions. This Special Issue aims to seek the high-quality papers from academics and industry-related researchers in the areas of power technology at the micro scale for propulsion systems applied to air and space vehicles, e.g.:
- High-performing micro power technology, assessment of existing technologies, and development of breakthrough technologies
- Micropropulsion systems, thermochemical propulsion, electric propulsion, hybrid propulsion, MEMS technologies
- Microfluidics, microcombustion, and free molecular flows
- Micro actuators
- Numerical techniques and computational fluid dynamics
- Small satellite platforms and micro UAVs

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 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
