Abstract

We have created an eight-element antenna array system for evaluating various Angle of Arrival (AOA) Position Location (PL) algorithms, such as MUltiple SIgnal Classification (MUSIC) and Estimation of Signal Parameters via Rotational Invariance Techniques ESPRIT algorithms. Since using delay of arrival information can improve AOA estimates and classical PL algorithms do not incorporate Delay of Arrival (DOA) information, the performance of these algorithms is not optimal. Recently proposed Joint AOA and DOA Estimation (JADE) algorithms, though more complicated, potentially have higher resolutions in both space and time domains. Our investigation shows that by using bandlimited known signals it is possible to resolve the DOA within a fraction of the sample period using JADE algorithms. Joint AOA and DOA algorithms can provide high resolution DSP-based channel measurement using low bandwidth hardware.
