Coherent wideband DOA estimation for non-uniform linear arrays (NLA) is considered. Array interpolation is used for two mappings. In the first mapping, NLA is mapped to a uniform linear array with the same array aperture. In the second mapping covariance matrices for each frequency bin are mapped to a single one at the center frequency for coherent DOA estimation. A Wiener formulation is used for array interpolation where both signal and noise powers are estimated with maximum likelihood method. Different approaches are compared and the advantages of wideband processing versus narrowband processing are outlined. The accuracy of the SNR estimation is high and it is shown that Wiener array interpolation significantly improves the DOA estimation performance in both narrowband and wideband

Partly-filled nonuniform linear arrays for DOA estimation in multipath signals
Tuncer, Temel Engin; Friedlander, Benjamin (2007-04-20)
Partly-filled nonuniform linear arrays (PFNLA) are presented and DOA estimation problem for multipath signals is investigated. A new approach is proposed for DOA estimation in nonuniform linear arrays (NLA) based on array interpolation. A Wiener formulation is used to improve the condition number of the mapping matrix as well as the performance for noisy observations. An initial DOA estimate is obtained by using the uniform part of the PFNLA. This initial estimate is used in array interpolation and a new co...
Direction of arrival estimation for nonuniform linear arrays by using array interpolation
Tuncer, Temel Engin; Friedlander, B. (2007-07-03)
[1] A new approach is proposed for DOA estimation in nonuniform linear arrays (NLA) based on array interpolation. A Wiener formulation is presented to improve the condition number of the mapping matrix as well as the performance for noisy observations. Noniterative and iterative methods for DOA estimation are proposed. These methods use an initial DOA which is then significantly improved by the subsequent processing. Partially augmentable nonredundant arrays (PANA) and partly filled NLA (PFNLA) are consider...
Uniform and Non-Uniform V-shaped Arrays for 2-D DOA Estimation
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Yasar, T. Kaya (2008-04-22)
In this study, a new method for optimum design of uniform and non-uniform V-shaped arrays is presented for azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed design method finds an optimum angle between the linear sub-arrays of the V-array by using the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) where statistical coupling effect between azimuth and elevation angle estimation is considered This method can be used to obtain directional and isotropic angle performances for uniform and non-uniform V-arrays. For non-uniform isotro...
Subarray selection in octave arrays
Kaderoğlu, Ali Rıza; Çiloğlu, Tolga; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-2-04)
Sensor layout of the octave array is designed to process a frequency range of several octaves. Array aperture of the highest octave band is limited to uniform line array (ULA) segment at the center. Forming a sparse array layout for the highest frequency band by using some of the remaining elements apart from ULA could bring some advantages such as higher array gain and better detection performance. Using a sparse array has a drawback of violating the spatial Nyquist limit, which may cause high sidelobes to...
Parallelization of noise subspace-based doa estimation algorithms on cpu and gpu
Eray, Hamza; Temizel, Alptekin; Department of Modeling and Simulation (2021-2-11)
Direction-of-Arrival (DOA) estimation is known as an active research area, and it is studied under array signal processing. The algorithms in this area are widely used in various applications such as sonar, search-and-rescue, navigation, and geolocation. However, achieving a real-time system performance is sometimes a challenging task for these algorithms. In this thesis, four noise subspace-based DOA estimation algorithms (PHD, MUSIC, EV, and MN) were considered and implemented in MATLAB, C/C++, and CUDA. ...
