Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Target detection and localization is an area of great importance and research interest in civil and defense radar systems. Recent developments in new technologies, e.g., artificial neural networks, multidimensional data fusion, and new representation models, as well as developments in advanced radar such as MIMO radar and OTH radar, have enhanced the ability to achieve high-performance detection and localization based on radar systems. These techniques have also brought new challenges in designing algorithms for radar detection and localization. The related research topics include multiple-target detection, network resource allocation, sensor placement optimization, data association, target tracking, direct target localization/tracking, distributed processing, and practical experiments. All these developments have motivated the opening of this Special Issue.

With this Special Issue, we aim to collect contributions reporting recent developments in radar detection and localization applications. Topics in the scope of this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Detection and/or localization aimed at radar signal processing;
  • Radar detection and localization under complex electromagnetic environments;
  • Radar detection and localization for autopilot and internet of vehicles;
  • Hybrid active/passive networked radar information fusion for target detection and localization;
  • Multiple-target tracking with advanced radar systems;
  • Distributed signal processing over netted radars;
  • Compressive signal processing for radar detection and localization;
  • Robust detection and localization approaches in complex environments;
  • New applications and models of radar detection and localization;
  • High-level radar applications based on the results of detection and localization;
  • Radar source management for detection and localization applications;
  • Artificial intelligence approaches for radar detection and localization.

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. Applied Sciences 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 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.
