Aerospace engineering reflects the synergistic interplay between various branches of engineering. The path breaking technologies developed by interdisciplinary research have contributed to tremendous advances in Aerospace sciences. Using many of these technologies, developed originally for aeronautics/aerospace applications, researchers today are reporting new and novel industrial applications. This confluence of basic sciences like biology and engineering is the emerging new area of research which is both fascinating and intellectually stimulating.

Some of the innovative developments of aerospace technologies in recent times include new shock wave assisted applications in the area of medicine, drug delivery systems, bio-technology, manufacturing industry; space solar power systems, energy storage systems, fuels cells, use of supercomputers, development of transdisciplinary computational techniques and cryogenic applications. The carbon fiber based composites used as heat shield material during re-entry is today used to manufacture cost effective artificial limbs for people with physical disabilities. The manufacturing techniques specially developed for machining components for aerospace applications have been instrumental in the development of innovative heat exchanger systems for ground based applications.

The sub-topics that are within the journal’s scope are: (a) use of fluid dynamic principles for the study of traffic flow, stock market, panic driven crowd motion, internet traffic problems, network data clogging and computations finance; (b) use of hypersonic flow to understand very low temperature (10 K) chemical reactions; (c) study of dynamic fracture propagation in metallic and composite loads and fragmentation mechanisms of automobile bumper shields using shock loading; (d) shock waves as photonic switches and as wave guides.

While these interdisciplinary applications are growing in numbers everyday there is no journal dedicated to this important area of emerging innovative aerospace technologies. New research being carried out by many groups in India, USA, Japan, Europe and Australia is published in conference proceedings or in core group meetings and is not available easily in open literature. It is with this background that there is an urgent need to establish an international journal reporting various novel aerospace applications.

The International Journal of Aerospace Innovations solicits original work in the areas of new science and engineering using the aerospace technologies.
