Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global navigation satellite system (GNSS) arena comprises four primary global systems—GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BDS—as well as two regional systems, QZSS and IRNSS. The fusion of these multi-GNSS systems into various devices and services unlocks new opportunities and challenges, necessitating the adoption of advanced methodologies from high-precision and geoscience fields. This integration enhances signal geometry, ensures redundancy, and extends coverage, especially in difficult environments. Algorithmic progress is crucial for leveraging these opportunities and tackling the challenges to improve the precision, availability, interoperability, and integrity of practical GNSS applications. Multi-GNSS is vital for its role in facilitating cutting-edge applications that demand high-precision navigation, such as autonomous vehicles and disaster management, and for maintaining reliable services essential to safety-critical operations. Moreover, it promotes international cooperation, aids in establishing global standards, and propels the evolution of satellite navigation technology, leading to a more interconnected and accurate world.

A Special Issue of the open access journal Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292) is now underway, focusing on ‘Advances in Multi-GNSS Technology and Applications’; it delves into the expanding realm of global navigation satellite systems (GNSSs), presenting both opportunities and challenges in delivering reliable position, navigation, and timing solutions crucial for contemporary human endeavors. We invite submissions covering GNSS receivers, positioning algorithms, contemporary applications, and software tool developments for data collection and processing, along with their applications in diverse fields. This Special Issue seeks to foster dialogue and collaboration in advancing the understanding and utilization of multi-GNSS technology across disciplines.

Contributions may include original research articles, reviews, case studies, and technical notes that provide insights into the current state of the art and future directions in the field of multi-GNSS technology and its diverse applications.

Articles may address, but are not limited, to the following topics:

  • Multi-GNSS techniques, algorithms, and methodologies;
  • High-precision GNSS methods;
  • New methods for atmospheric modeling and applications;
  • Advances in GNSS signal processing and theoretical modeling;
  • Multi-sensor applications;
  • Next-generation signal design for navigation purposes;
  • GNSS signal processing, positioning, navigation, and timing;
  • GNSS integrity monitoring, interference mitigation, and novel applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Remote Sensing 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 2700 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.
