Special Issue "Sensor Innovations for Spacecraft Guidance, Navigation, and Control"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2015).
Interests: guidance; navigation; control and dynamics of aerospace systems; control theory; state estimation theory
Interests: spacecraft attitude estimation; star trackers; sun sensors; sensor processing; sensor calibration
Emerging applications in small spacecraft ADCS, on-orbit proximity operations and planetary exploration, are driving researchers to develop innovative GNC technologies. We are pleased to announce this special issue of Sensors, and invite manuscripts that highlight recent advances in this field. The scope of this special issue will include:
- Innovative designs for GNC sensors
- Novel sensing concepts and architectures
- Improvements in data processing techniques that enhance GNC performance.
- Case studies illustrating advances in sensor modelling, calibration, testing, and flight experiments
Enquiries about the issue’s scope can be directed to the Guest Editors.

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.
