Special topic:

When Aeronautics Meets 6G Communications and AI

Topic summary:

Telecommunications  empowers aerial vehicles to communicate with the ground control station through air-ground communications or satellite communications, which has significantly improved the safety and operation efficiency of various aircrafts. 

However, therapid development of aircrafts and critical flight limitations make the current crowded space area more concentrated, which not only increases the workload of existing communication systems but also imposes more stringent requirements such as peak data rate and latency for safety related aeronautical communications. 

In the wireless communications community, communication  technologies have been developed rapidly from 1G to 5G, and the next generation(6G) mobile communication system has been proposed and is envisioned to support global seamless coverage with space-air-ground integrated networks, which make sit possible to use 6G to support the aeronautical applications. 

On the other hand, aerial vehicles are also part of the 6G system, which provide platforms for communication devices. In light of this, 6G and aeronautics will be interconnected more tightly in the future. The interoperation of 6G and aeronautics makes the conventional communication systems more complex, ranging from the propagation model, resource management, and trajectory planning etc.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play an important role in the highly dynamic network environment, to deal with more heterogeneous resource management and more time critical aircraft control, resulting in AI empowered 6G for aeronautics and AI enabled aeronautics for 6G.This special issue will bring leading researchers and engineers from both industry andacademia together to present their latest research on 6G for aeronautics andaeronautics for 6G with AI. 

The content of the special issue will focus on the 6G network architecture for aeronautics and implementations, interoperation technologies, performance modeling and optimization, resource management in 6G and aeronautics, and other enabling technologies.

The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

(1)  New architectures for aircraft control and management

(2)  New theories and techniques for navigation, guidance and control

(3)  6G/AI for air-ground integrated networks

(4)  6G/AI for missiles

(5)  6G/AI for UAVs

(6)  6G/AI for spacecrafts

(7)  6G/AI-based aeronautics sensing

(8)  6G/AI-based aeronautics control

(9)  6G/AI-based aeronautics networking

(10) 6G/AI applications in aeronautics

(11) 6G/AI-based ultra-reliable communications and control

(12) 6G/AI-based aircraft trajectory optimization

(13) 6G / AIenabled multiple aircrafts coordination

(14) Autonomous intelligent flight control and task planning

(15) Joint communication and control design for aircrafts

(16) Energy-efficient aircraft communications and navigation

(17) Radio and space resource management for aircraft communications

(18) Massive MIMO / Millimeter wave communications for aircrafts
