Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Aeronautical telemetry is a one-way air-to-ground radio link that transmits measurements made on an airborne test article to flight test engineers on the ground. The radio link is characterized by a long distance—in the order of 100 miles (161 km)—as being highly dynamic and hence having a high Doppler, and, when the elevation angle from the ground station is low, severe frequency selective multipath propagation. Error control coding has been used to improve data integrity in this non-ideal propagation environment as well as to extend the usable range between the test article and the ground station. The goals of this Special Issue are to assess the impact of the error control codes currently used in aeronautical mobile telemetry, examine potential improvements in error control coding, and to explore other forms of coding, such as physical layer security codes, space–time coding, coded modulation, etc., for potential applications in aeronautical telemetry.

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. Entropy 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 2600 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.
