Space Engineering is a vast field of study in Aerospace Engineering that involves applying scientific approaches to the spacecraft system design. Spacecraft subsystems have various design methodologies in design stages including conceptual design, preliminary design and detail design. Orbital mechanics is one of the most important studies which affect the design process of almost every subsystem in spacecraft, especially Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC). This subsystem is a branch of spacecraft system design that has the major contribution to the success of space mission in different classes of spacecrafts such as satellites and upper-stages. Orbital mechanics concerned with specifying or predicting state vectors over intervals of time while the spacecraft moves in its trajectory in its space mission. The objective of this special issue is to discuss and provide novel theoretical and experimental developments and progress in the conceptual and preliminary design process of spacecrafts involving orbital mechanics and propose novel approaches in different aspects of space engineering including spacecraft trajectories and guidance. Questioning the systematic perspective in theoretical investigations between orbital mechanics and system design is the main concern in this issue.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
1. Guidance Methodologies
2. Non-impulsive Orbital Maneuvers
3. Spacecraft Dynamics & Control
4. Satellite Station-Keeping
5. Spacecraft Nonlinear Dynamics
6. Orbital Perturbations
7. Interplanetary Missions
8. Orbit Determination
9. Spacecraft Navigation
