This paper presents approximations for the rms error of the maximum likelihood estimator of the direction of a plane wave incident on a random array. The sensor locations are assumed to be realizations of independent, identically distributed random vectors. The second part of the paper presents an asymptotically unbiased estimator of the noise wavenumber spectrum from random array data.
