Winners of 2015 Unmanned Systems' AeroLion Technologies Outstanding Paper Award

Unmanned Systems (www.worldscientific.com/us/<http://www.worldscientific.com/us/>) is pleased to announce the following winners of the journal's inaugural AeroLion Technologies Outstanding Paper Award:

K. Kang, J. V. R. Prasad, Development and Flight Test Evaluations of an Autonomous Obstacle Avoidance System for a Rotary-Wing UAV, Unmanned Systems, Vol. 1, No. 1 (2013) 3-19.

N. Kopeikin, S. S. Ponda, L. B. Johnson, J. P. How, Dynamic Mission Planning for Communication Control in Multiple Unmanned Aircraft Teams, Unmanned Systems, Vol. 1, No. 1 (2013) 41-58.

The annual prize money of US$3000 is equally divided between the two teams.
Congratulations, winners!

The two papers were selected from a shortlist of five manuscripts; selected after a preliminary screening based on reviewers' comments and citation records of papers published in Unmanned Systems since 2013. Shortlisted papers were then sent out to some advisory board members for further review.
Recommendations from advisory board members led to the unanimous agreement of the editors-in-chief to give the AeroLion Technologies Outstanding Paper Award this year to two winners instead of just one.

The AeroLion Technologies Outstanding Paper Award is to recognize an outstanding paper published in the Unmanned Systems. Sponsored by AeroLion Technologies Private Limited (www.aerolion.com<http://www.aerolion.com>), the award consists of a cash prize up to US$3,000 in total each year starting from 2015. The winners will be notified each year by December 1. Authors of papers published in Unmanned Systems during the two calendar years preceding the year of the award are eligible for the award. Nominated work will be judged by an award committee based on its originality, relevance of the application, clarity of exposition, and demonstrated impact on Unmanned Systems technology.More information on the award can be found at http://www.worldscientific.com/page/us/SG-UAV.

Unmanned Systems is published quarterly by World Scientific Publishing Co.
and is now indexed on the Thomson Reuters' Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which makes listed journals (and their respective published papers) searchable in the Web of Science; increasing their visibility in the Web of Science Core Collection. Journals listed in ESCI are also being evaluated annually for suitability of being transferred to other indexes such as the SCI, and will be moved to the larger index(es) once deemed to meet the relevant criteria.
