Special Issue Information 

Dear Colleagues, 

The study of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) represents a rich and complex
combination of fundamental research and applied real-time solutions.
Researchers from different domains are proposing and demonstrating new and
versatile ways to develop UAS that can become worthwhile and applicable in
our modern and complex society. Critical infrastructure inspection and
repair, parcel delivery, film and photography in the entertainment domain,
as well as wireless information relays, among others, are some of the areas
of UAS research development. These previous examples require novel
estimation, control, and multi-agent coordination techniques with a solid
theoretical background, but at the same time with a computational complexity
that allows them to be implemented in a realistic mission. 

In this Special Issue our goal is to bring together key researchers in this
area to provide the readership of Drones with up-to-date and survey-style
papers on fundamental and applied research perspectives on the
state-of-the-art in this exciting field. In general, it seeks to collect
innovative works on the estimation, control, and coordination of multiple
UAS. Specific solutions addressing novel approaches for sensor fusion,
GPS-denied navigation, power alternative/efficient systems, computer
vision-based solutions, platforms with increased safety measures, as well as
cyber-security are also of great interest. Submissions of comprehensive
overviews of UAS-related research, with a particular focus on applications
are also of interest to the Drones community and are highly encouraged.
Please contact the Guest Editors if you have any questions about whether
your proposed article would fit the scope of this Special Issue. 

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 

Unmanned aircraft systems 
multi-UAS coordination 
sensor fusion 
load transportation 
power alternative/efficient systems 
computer vision-inspired solutions 
safety measures
