Special Issue in Sensors: Attitude Estimation Based on Data Processing of Sensors
Attitude, that is, the knowledge of the pointing orientation in space, is the most important information for any space vehicle. The performance of space communication, observation, and navigation systems all strongly depend on how fast, reliably, and optimal the attitude information is estimated to be. This estimation comes from attitude sensors through two subsequent processes: (1) sensor data processing and (2) attitude estimation. These are the two tracks of this Special Issue on “Attitude Sensors”.
Track I: Sensor data processing. This track is particularly interested in novel ideas of attitude sensors and new approaches to increase measurement accuracy and robustness as, for instance, techniques to perform star-identification with poor knowledge of star tracker parameters and autonomous recalibration.
Track II: Attitude Estimation. This track welcomes new contributions related to both single-point and filtered attitude determination techniques. This involves, for instance, the use of dual quaternions or SVD filtering to estimate attitude and attitude rate.

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 2200 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.
