Avionic systems have undergone remarkable technological investigation and innovation in the last 50 years. The inexorable evolution involves updates and upgrades on two main branches of avionics: Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) and Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC). CNS entails avionic engineering of enabling systems for aircraft and spacecraft operations, such as air traffic control and space mission control. GNC focuses on air and space vehicles themselves regarding movement performance, such as vehicle flight control.
The development and advancement of avionic CNS/GNC systems involve solutions for a range of applications for substantiable air/space transportation, e.g., management of air/space traffic, including integration of unmanned systems and the use of intelligent satellites. Avionic approaches require considerations of aspects regarding safety and security (including cybersecurity), as well as standards and certification of avionic systems. Evolutionary architectures of avionic systems take great progress on automation to the next level and foster autonomy. This step forward pushes technological solutions beyond avionics and involves other disciplines, such as robotics and Artificial Intelligence.
This Special Issue is aimed at the dissemination of research and engineering advances on avionic systems for CNS and GNC, including challenges and opportunities for current and future avionics for aeronautics and astronautics. Topics and areas of the Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Application of Artificial Intelligence in avionic systems;
- Robotic avionics and autonomous avionics for air/space vehicles;
- Smart CNS avionics for airspace/space integration of unmanned systems;
- Connectivity and cybersecurity certification of avionic systems;
- Human–avionics collaboration for augmented intelligence;
- Distributed integrated modular avionics and future avionics architectures and networks;
- Reconfigurable GNS avionics for next generations of air/space transport;
- Intelligent satellite constellation and radar satellites;
- Avionics power management and distribution;
- Cyber-physical avionics systems.
