Call for Papers - JGCD - Kalman Filter Written 9 August 2016

Special Issue on “The Kalman Filter and Its Aerospace Applications”

On July 2, 2016 the guidance, navigation, and control (GN&C) community lost its eminent ambassador, with the passing of Rudolf Emil Kálmán. Although Kálmán made significant advances to general control and estimation theory, his greatest legacy is the invention of the legendary “Kalman filter,” first published in 1960. For his pioneering work he was given many prestigious awards.

In honor of Rudolf Kálmán, the Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics (JGCD) will dedicate a special issue on “The Kalman Filter and Its Aerospace Applications.” The focus of the special issue is specifically targeted to novel aerospace GN&C applications involving the Kalman filter. The applied research paper must address original and/or unique uses of the Kalman filter. Guidelines for submitting your manuscript can be found in the full Call for Papers on the JGCD page in Aerospace Research Central; The journal website is Please submit papers by December 2016.
