The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine is a monthly magazine that publishes articles concerned with the various aspects of systems for space, air, ocean, or ground environments as well as news and information of interest to IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society members. Our goal is to inform the readers of technologies, state of the art, design trades, etc. so that they will gain insights into a field heretofore unknown to them. We want to introduce technical specialties to readers in the hope that something in the articles will give them some insight for their own fields of endeavor.
The boundaries of acceptable subject matter have been intentionally left flexible so that the Magazine can follow the research activities, technology applications and future trends to better meet the needs of the members of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society. The topics of current interest are best summarized in the areas published in the inside front cover of the magazine and by the technical fields of interest of the IEEE Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society (AESS) editors.
As of 1 March 2021, new manuscripts must be submitted via https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/aesm. Manuscripts originally submitted before this date using http://sysaes.msubmit.net will remain in the msubmit system, and that includes revised versions. The msubmit system will close once all current active submissions have reached a final decision.

Student Highlights include:
1) Student Project Highlights
Student project highlights are short 2-3 page articles that showcase student projects. These articles describe the motivation, student contributions, and future directions of a specific student project. These articles should not be used as a main publication for novel research or be overly technical. These articles can showcase research either by high school, undergraduate, or graduate students or by a group of students in any of these domains. One to two photographs and up to two equations can be submitted.
2) Student Research Highlights
Student research highlights are typically submitted by graduate students working on a Master’s thesis or Doctoral dissertation. These highlights can be thought of as a two-page abstract of the student’s thesis, a proposal, or a recent research paper. The author should cite the publications relevant to the research being described in the highlight. Student research highlights should include a short bio along with a picture. Single authors are preferred, and if the student has an advisor, he/she should be mentioned as a footnote. These submissions should be ~800 words and when possible include a figure and up to two equations.
3) Student Activity Highlights
Student activity highlights is a more broad section and can include activities that students at any level are doing that are relevant or would be of interest to our readers. They do not have to be written by students but must be about students and an activity they participated in.
Note: If you are a graduate student submitting a regular article to the magazine, please do not use the Student Highlight category. Select one of the other categories when submitting your paper through the electronic submission website.
Instructions for Authors: Conference Reports
It is expected that organizers of IEEE AESS Conferences submit a report to the Magazine within two months following the conference’s end. The reports should be written at such a level that the general Systems reader will be interested. Some technical details are therefore welcome in that these describe the conference theme, but lists of papers and similar items should be avoided. Conference reports benefit greatly from photographs – these should be in color and be of good resolution, and a descriptive caption is key. In the case of a financially (co-)sponsored conference this report should not exceed 4 printed pages; and for technical sponsorship, the maximum length is 2 pages. Financially co-sponsored conference reports should include logos of AESS and other financial co-sponsors; other reports should not include logos. Reports related to conferences that are not AESS sponsored in any way can be submitted, but will be considered only if the AESS level of interest (such as membership in the organizing committee, familiar plenary speakers, etc.) is reasonably high; and the maximum length is one-half printed page. A printed page in Systems with no figures is usually 700-800 words.
Instructions for Authors: Industry Insights
We welcome short papers, 3-4 pages long, that showcase industry projects, system solutions, and problem-solving approaches from an industrial standpoint. It can be wide in scope, in the sense that it offers company-wide perspective; or it can be quite focused and give details on a particular product line or task.
