Interests: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Spotlight and Stripmap focusing; SAR Interferometry and Differential SAR interferometry; Coherent filtering of SAR images; Precise atmospheric phase error estimation; 3-D SAR and polarimetric SAR Tomography; Polarimetric SAR assisted by Multi Chromatic Analysis (MCA) for target future extraction; Advanced algorithms development for Oil-Spill detection; SAR video production using the single SAR image by MCA; SAR refocusing for maritime surveillance; Low rank plus sparse decomposition for automatic future extraction; Super Resolution by spectrum extrapolation; Polarimetric Permanent Scatterers (PS) for precise 3D reconstruction and precise geolocation (Polarimetric-3-D Targeting); Multidimensional subsidence estimation by multiple look-angles of satellite observations and precise velocity/acceleration estimation
We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue on all aspects of research and development related to these scientific and technical areas and in all possible domains of applications. Original research articles that focus on sensors in target detection and experimental validation are welcome to highlight novel approaches, recent advancements, and new application areas or that solve an important problem. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):
- Visible cameras, IR cameras, multi-spectral sensors
- Radar and sonar sensors
- Sensor fusion
- Sensor placement, Sensor coverage
- Wireless sensor networks
- Synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) imaging, polarimetric (PolSAR), Interferometric SAR (InSAR), Polarimetric interferometric SAR (PolInSAR), Differential interferometric SAR (DinSAR), Persistent scatterer interferometry (PSInSAR), Multi-chromatic analysis (MCA) for SAR (MCA-SAR), SAR tomography
- Pixel tracking in synthetic aperture radar for glacier applications
- Pixel tracking in synthetic aperture radars for maritime surveillance
- Along-track interferometry (ATI) for sea, lake and river current velocity estimation (distributed targets) and for maritime surveillance (coherent targets)
- High-resolution, wide-swath strategies for synthetic aperture radars
- Geosynchronous synthetic aperture radars, high-resolution methods and strategies
- Hyperspectral satellite imaging classification and super-resolution techniques
- Ground/marine moving target indication (MTI)
- Direction-of-arrival tracking
- Deep-learning applied to remote sensing

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. 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 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.
