In practical applications, multipath is the dominant error source for parameter estimation. In this paper, a far-field source and its near-field multipaths are considered. Far-field source azimuth and elevation angles are estimated using multipath calibration. A near-to-far field transformation is proposed for near-field source localization where azimuth and range parameters are estimated. Proposed method is evaluated using close-to-real world data generated by a commercial numerical electromagnetic tool. It is shown that parameters can be estimated effectively showing the potential of the proposed approach for practical applications.

DIRECTION FINDING AND LOCALIZATION FOR FAR-FIELD SOURCES WITH NEAR-FIELD MULTIPATH REFLECTIONS
Elbir, Ahmet M.; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-08-12)
Multipath signals are main source of error for parameter estimation in direction finding applications. In this paper, a new method is proposed for the estimation of direction-of-arrivals (DOA) of a far-field source and localization of its near-field multipath reflections in two steps. Firstly, far-field source DOA is estimated using a calibration technique. In the second step, a near-to-far field transformation is presented in order to eliminate the far-field components of the array data and obtain only nea...
Sparse Signal Recovery for Localization of Coherent Far- and Near-Field Signals
Elbir, Ahmet M.; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-05-19)
In direction finding (DF) and localization applications, coherency among the signals is an important source of error for parameter estimation. In this paper, a method is proposed to solve the DF problem where there are coherently mixed arbitrary number of far-and near-field sources. In order to estimate the direction-of-arrival (DOA) and the range parameters, compressed sensing (CS) approach is presented where a dictionary matrix is constructed with far-and near-field steering vectors. A sparse vector inclu...

Direction-of-Arrival and Mutual Coupling Coefficient Estimation With A Single Observation For Arbitrary Array Structures
Elbir, Ahmet M.; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-05-19)
In this paper, single snapshot direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation under mutual coupling (MC) is considered for arbitrary array structures. A compressed sensing approach is utilized and a joint-sparse recovery algorithm is proposed for DOA and MC coefficient estimation. In this respect, both spatial source directions and MC coefficients are embedded into a joint-sparse vector. A new dictionary matrix is defined using the symmetricity of the MC matrix. The proposed approach does not depend on the structure...
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...
