Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Radar and air defense systems are specific engineering products, related technically and functionally. In terms of design, they are the progenitors of advanced mechatronic systems. They are characterized by the technical diversity of elements, functional complexity, advanced signal processing from air targets and missiles, real-time data transfer and fusion, and high levels of automation and operating precision. Scientific and technical interdisciplinarity, as well as the need to adapt to unfavorable environmental conditions, make radar and air defense systems complex and difficult to develop. Experimental testing, necessary for the collection of reliable results, is extremely expensive and involves a range of organizational and logistical challenges. Simulation methods therefore play an important role at the initial stages when formulating assumptions or verifying the correctness of a design concept. High-credibility simulation models are built using mathematical modelling of physical phenomena, taking into account technical conditions specific to the considered issues, while solutions are sought using numerical methods.

This Special Issue aims to collate papers presenting the progress in the fields of radar and missile technology strictly related to air defense systems, as well as papers highlighting novel means to identify problems and provide innovative solutions in this area. Therefore, it is our pleasure to invite you all to contribute to this Special Issue of Sensors. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Radar sensors design and platform developments;
  • Antenna design, modeling, and measurements;
  • Active and passive devices;
  • Radar cross section modeling, simulation, and measurements;
  • Radar target tracking and signal processing;
  • Radar signal recognition and classification algorithms;
  • Radar missile seekers;
  • Missile guidance and radio control systems;
  • Multi-sensor data fusion and processing in network-centric air defense

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sensors 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 2600 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.
