Special Issue Information
The emergence of low-cost and easy-to-use unmanned aerial systems or vehicles (UAS or UAV), commonly referred to as drones, has led to an explosion of their use for numerous applications. In particular, these new platforms have enabled new imaging and remote sensing technologies and applications previously unavailable due to the high cost and operational limitations of manned aircraft or satellites. UAVs have gained increasing attention within the remote sensing community in many areas including environment, natural resource, agriculture, and water, to name but a few. The development and advancement of hardware are ever-increasing, algorithm/data processing, and applications of UAS necessitating more frequent scientific publications, gatherings and conferences to exchange the latest advances in UAV remote sensing.
The 4th Systems and Technologies for Remote Sensing Application through Unmanned Aerial Systems or STRATUS Conference had been planned to be held on May 18–20, 2020 at the University at Buffalo, NY, USA (stratus-conference.com). However, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the organizing committee decided to postpone the 2020 STRATUS Conference to MAY 2021. The 2021 STRATUS conference will be held at the University at Buffalo, NY, USA on May 17-19, 2021 and it will be a mix of in-person and virtual meetings and talks. Please check the conference website for more details: Stratus-conference.com. Accordingly, the full paper submissions to the special issue of Remote Sensing- Open Access Journal is extended to September 1, 2021.
The conference offers an opportunity for US and international researchers, industry representatives, and domain specialists to discuss and present their research related to UAV hardware software/data processing, and application development. In addition to oral presentations and posters, conference presenters are welcome to submit scientific papers for publication in this Special Issue of the open access journal Remote Sensing. All paper submissions will go through the normal peer-review process of the journal. Up to five high-quality submissions will be selected as Feature Papers and published free of charge!
The Special Issue is open to all abstracts submitted to 2020STRATUS and 2021STRATUS Conference, as well as outside papers focused on software and algorithm development, data processing, photogrammetry, and applications of UAV.
We would like to invite articles on studies using state-of-the-art UAV systems and data. Submissions are encouraged to cover a broad range of topics, which may include, without being limited to, the following UAV-related subjects:
- Remote sensing
- 3D and multi-view Imaging
- Geospatial and mapping
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning of UAV data
- Applications in forestry, wetland, agriculture, construction, surveying, transportation, disaster management, emergency response, and more.
- Environmental monitoring and modeling
- Platforms, calibration, sensor, and imaging systems
- Technologies and applications
- Algorithm and image processing
- Photogrammetry and image matching
- Geohazards and extreme events

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. Remote Sensing 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 2500 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.
