Special Issue in Sensors: 70th Anniversary of SAR: A Themed Issue Dedicated to Carl Atwood Wiley
SAR and ISAR are important microwave detection tools for remote sensing and reconnaissance. The underlying electromagnetic scattering mechanism and coherent imaging system produce unique target characteristics in the resulting images. While these characteristics are complicated to interpret and understand visually, they provide unique target information which are essential for classification and identification. A good Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) system should have the capability to locate the region of interest (ROI) containing the potential targets and recognize those target signatures with high accuracy and efficiency without any manual intervention.
This Special Issue is aimed to the submission of both review and original research articles related to, but not limited to SAR/ISAR ATR systems. Multi and hyperspectral approaches are also welcome. The Special Issue is also not limited to land-based and/or air-borne man-made targets. Sea-going targets, as well as natural resource (vegetation, etc.) identification and monitoring are also encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
