Classical and Modern Direction of Arrival Estimation contains both theory and practice of direction finding by the leading researchers in the field. This unique blend of techniques used in commercial DF systems and state-of-the art super-resolution methods is a valuable source of information for both practicing engineers and researchers. Key topics covered are:

  • Classical methods of direction finding
  • Practical DF methods used in commercial systems
  • Calibration in antenna arrays
  • Array mapping, fast algorithms and wideband processing
  • Spatial time-frequency distributions for DOA estimation
  • DOA estimation in threshold region
  • Higher order statistics for DOA estimation
  • Localization in sensor networks and direct position estimation
  • Brings together in one book classical and modern DOA techniques, showing the connections between them
  • Contains contributions from the leading people in the field
  • Gives a concise and easy- to- read introduction to the classical techniques
  • Evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of key super-resolution techniques
  • Includes applications to sensor networks
