The IEEE Journal on Miniaturization for Air and Space Systems (J-MASS) is a new technical journal devoted to covering the rapidly evolving field of small air and space systems such as drones and small satellites. These platforms offer new, low-cost ways to accomplish a wide range of sensing functions for applications ranging from agriculture to land use and ocean surveys.
Papers are sought that address innovative approaches to solving problems related to the development and use of miniaturized platforms such as drones and CubeSats. The scope includes the sensors (across the electromagnetic spectrum), platform systems (propulsion, navigation, power, communication) and the processing of data coming from these sensors. Papers may include theory, data processing, application, and operation of small platforms along with the design of both platforms and sensor systems. Papers covering educational activities in developing small platforms or their sensors are also encouraged.
