Special Issue "Space Trajectory Planning"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 3050
Interests: spacecraft dynamics; attitude control; vibration suppression and orbit guidance; navigation and control with application to spacecraft on-orbit service and space debris
We are pleased to announce a new open access Special Issue in “Aerospace” dedicated to space trajectory planning. As an application branch of the dynamics and control discipline, space trajectory planning aims to develop effective alternatives to obtain available spacecraft trajectories with various constraints.
Space trajectory planning has a clear application background and distinctive interdisciplinary characteristics. It plays an important role in giving the desired path to the controller, in order to achieve good performance. Additionally, nowadays, space tasks tend to be more complicated with higher requirements. Specifically, with multiple constraints and objectives, trajectory planning is quite challenging
This feature topic solicits papers focusing on the role space trajectory planning will play in advancing human exploration in the near-earth region as well as deep space, endeavouring to identify critical issues and provide feasible solutions in this field. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- spacecraft trajectory planning
- space trajectory optimization
- orbit dynamics and control
- dynamic trajectory planning
- multi-objective optimization
- space manipulator trajectory planning

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. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
