Antenna arrays are one of the key features of all modern communication and industrial systems employing RF, microwave, and mm-wave frequencies.
The challenges faced by modern and future communication systems require devices capable of dynamically manipulating the electromagnetic field. The best and most flexible way of realizing these devices is by means of antenna arrays.
Just as an example, the short coming ITC technologies, like 5G and IoT communications, will make a massive use of antenna arrays to satisfy the requirement of thousands of contemporaneously connected devices. Beside the more recent applications, we cannot neglect the importance of arrays and relative signal processing for more "traditional" applications, like radar, satellite communications, astronomical observation.
For all these reasons, the research on arrays, from the first studies in the middle of the last century, has never stopped, and array-related topics are now particularly hot.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality submissions that highlight emerging applications of arrays, addressing recent breakthroughs in the development of array antennas and array signal processing.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Antenna array synthesis
- Smart and adaptive arrays
- Active arrays
- Sparse arrays
- Arrays for IoT
- Arrays for 5G communications
- Reconfigurable arrays
- Antenna Array measurements
- Antenna Array diagnosis
- Antenna Array optimization
- Arrays for satellite communications
- Arrays for astronomical applications
- Arrays for biomedical applications
- MIMO and Massive MIMO arrays
- Beam forming networks
- Beam forming techniques
- Target identification and DoA estimation

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. Electronics 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 1800 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.
