Planetary exploration is of great significance in promoting the development of science and technology and advancing human civilization more broadly, representing the frontier field of science and technology development in the world. Laser and optical remote sensing payloads, including cameras, spectrometers, imaging spectrometers, and LiDAR, have been widely applied in planetary exploration, playing an irreplaceable role with excellent prospects for scientific and technological applications. While the techniques of laser and optical remote sensing for planetary exploration are similar to those applied for Earth remote sensing, the application of laser and optical remote sensing in planetary exploration is confronted with problems such as complex deep space environments, lighter and smaller requirements on payloads with lower power consumption and long-life payload design requirements, and therefore requires specialized research.
With the development of computational optics, machine learning, materials science and other fields, laser and optical payloads will definitely achieve higher resolution, higher sensitivity and wider detection range to help planetary remote sensing exploration.
This Special Issue aims to study key technologies in laser and optical remote sensing, focusing on topics ranging from remote sensing payload development, breakthroughs in key technologies, research on quantification methods and data processing for scientific applications. In addition, new methods and research on the topic of multi-source data composite applications in laser/optical remote sensing are also welcome. Articles may cover, but are not limited to, the following areas:
- Laser and optical remote sensing payload for planetary exploration
- Research on key technique of remote sensing payload
- Research on spectral detection and component analysis technique
- Research on LiDAR detection and navigation technique
- Research on passive optical remote sensing technique
- Optical laser/detector/sensor for navigation and guidance of deep space exploration
- Research on novel method and technique adapted to complex space exploration
- Dark and weak target detection method
- Research on modeling/simulation/calibration/data processing/analysis of remote sensing payload
- Multi-source remote sensing data composite application method
