Dear Authors and Readers,

Welcome to the  Aerotecnica Missili & Spazio 2001-2018 Open Archive.

Starting from January 1st 2019, Aerotecnica Missili & Spazio will be published by Springer Nature.

All the Volumes up to n.97 (2018) will continue to be available for download on this website, whereas following issues can be found on ATMS-Springer Website.


Authors who wish to submit their manuscripts are invited to go to ATMS-Springer website and to follow the instructions.

Thank you for considering ATMS to publish your work!




The journal aims at publishing contributions in the field of aerospace sciences technologies and systems. This includes disciplines in the area of mechanical sciences like flight mechanics, aerodynamics, propulsion, aerothermochemistry, structures and materials, astrodynamics as well as other disciplines such as telecommunication, navigation, control, electronics, informatics and all aspects related to ground testing and operations when applied to the aerospace field. Contributions regarding the aeronautical or space vehicle as an engineering system are particularly welcome. In addition to covering the basic disciplines here above recalled, submitted manuscripts should always address the aerospace missions and systems rather than strictly specialized topics more appropriate to a discipline-oriented journal. Paper dealing with overall exploitation and management of aerospace systems and on the impact of scientific applications on system design and operation, as an example in the fields of remote sensing, microgravity, geodesy, exploration and astrophysics, are encouraged too. Aerotecnica Missili e Spazio welcomes scientific contributions that provide a clear novelty in their field and assesses the quality of the papers by a strict peer review process under the supervision of the editor supported by an international editorial board of experts.
