A new method for optimum design of V-shaped arrays is presented for azimuth and elevation angle estimation simultaneously. The design criterion is based on the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) for joint estimation where the coupling effect between the azimuth and elevation direction of arrival (DOA) angles is taken into account. The design method finds an optimum angle between the linear sub-arrays of the V-array. The computation of the optimum angle is simple due to the monotonic characteristics of the best and worst performance levels of CRB. The proposed method can be used to obtain directional arrays with significantly better DOA performance compared to the circular arrays. Furthermore V-array angle can be chosen for isotropic angle performance which is better than the circular arrays. The modeling error for the sensor positions is also investigated. It is shown that both V-array and circular array have similar robustness for the position errors.

Design of V-shaped array geometry
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Yasar, T. Kaya (2007-06-13)
in this study, a new design method is proposed for V-shaped planar array geometry for two-dimensional azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed method is similar to filter design in signal processing. This method determines the V-shaped array geometry which gives the best 2-D angle estimation performances for the specified design parameters. The best geometry is determined by using Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) and performance comparison is done with other planar array geometries.
UNIFORM AND NONUNIFORM V-SHAPED ISOTROPIC PLANAR ARRAYS
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2008-07-23)
In this study, isotropic V-shaped uniform and nonuniform arrays are considered. An isotropic array has the same value for the Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) for all direction of arrival (DOA) angles. The conditions for isotropic V-shaped arrays are presented and closed form expressions for V-shaped uniform and nonuniform arrays are found. These expressions return the V-angle for the array. Therefore, given the number of sensors and sensor displacements, isotropic performance V-angle can be found easily. V-shaped ar...

Arda, Kaan; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020-10)
This thesis aims to provide in depth research on tightly coupled dipole arrays to be used in ultrawideband apertures applications. First, operation principles of tightly coupled dipole arrays are investigated. Starting from the Wheeler’s current sheet aperture concept, some calculations on bandwidth and impedance concepts are conducted. B.A. Munk’s addition to the concept, use of capacitive elements between adjacent dipoles, are introduced. Array unit cell is modeled using equivalent circuit approach,...
Extension of Forward Backward Method with DFT Based Acceleration Algorithm for The Efficient Analysis of Radiation Scattering from Large Finite Printed Dipole Arrays
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (Wiley, 2003-04-01)
A discrete‐Fourier‐transform (DFT) based forward‐backward (FB) algorithm has been developed for the fast and accurate analysis of electrically large freestanding dipole arrays [1]. In this paper, an extension of the FB method (FBM) with a DFT‐based acceleration approach is presented to provide a relatively efficient analysis of EM radiation/scattering from an electrically large, planar, periodic, finite dipole array printed on a grounded dielectric substrate. Computational complexity of this new approach is...
