Radar is an irreplaceable sensor in many civil and military applications. It is able to reveal the target information without being affected by challenging weather conditions. In recent decades, multi-dimensional radar sensing techniques show promising results by using multiple frequencies, polarizations, and channels. However, original and innovative contributions on exploring the system potential, improving the algorithm performance, and addressing the key challenges, are still highly required. Recent evolutions in terms of computationally efficient algorithms for high-dimensional data, robust sensing systems with low complexity, and AI-aided radar sensing applications point out the main directions in multi-dimensional radar sensing. For instance, machine learning techniques dramatically advanced the state-of-the-art for many applications by leveraging the nature of adaptive feature representations. Motivated by this clue, intelligent radar perception/sensing has been widely concerned by many academies, research institutes, and space agencies, but the powerful learning framework still remain to be further exploited in the area of multi-dimensional radar sensing. Otherwise, compressed sensing has brought revolutionary breakthroughs for accurately reconstructing sparse signals. It demonstrates that the signal can be recovered with a sub-Nyquist sampling rate, promising it is sparse or compressible. That gives us a promising way to simplify the sensing systems. In addition, many of the latest technologies, new ideas are expected to be used in this field. With this special issue, we aim to compile advanced research outcomes which specifically address various multi-dimensional radar sensing problems in terms of systems, algorithms, and applications. Papers for discussing the major challenges, latest developments, and recent advances in this area are highly welcomed.
