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 near-field signal components to estimate the near-field multipath signals. The proposed method uses uniform circular array in order to give 2D DOA estimation for far-field signal and virtual uniform linear array structure is used in order to estimate locations of the near-field multipaths. The proposed method is evaluated using both ideal and close-to-real world data sets. It is shown that far and near-field source parameters are effectively estimated.

Angle and Position Estimation for Far-Field and Near-Field Multipath Signals
Elbir, Ahmet M.; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2014-04-25)
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. I...
SOURCE LOCALIZATION WITH SPARSE RECOVERY FOR COHERENT FAR- AND NEAR-FIELD SIGNALS
Elbir, Ahmet M.; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-08-12)
In source 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 localization 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 including the...
Conformal black hole solutions of axidilaton gravity in D dimensions
Cebeci, H; Dereli, T (2002-02-15)
Static, spherically symmetric solutions of axidilaton gravity in D dimensions are given in the Brans-Dicke frame for arbitrary values of the Brans-Dicke constant omega and an axion-dilaton coupling parameter k. The mass and the dilaton and axion charges are determined and a BPS bound is derived. There exists a one-parameter family of black hole solutions in the scale-invariant limit.

Far-field DOA estimation and near-field localization for multipath signals
Elbir, Ahmet M.; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2014-09-01)
In direction finding and localization applications, multipath signals are important sources of error for parameter estimation. When the antenna array receives multipath reflections which are coherent with the far-field line-of-sight signal, estimating the far-and near-field components becomes an important problem. In this paper, a new method is proposed to estimate the direction-of-arrival (DOA) of the far-field source and to localize its near-field multipaths. Far-field source DOA is estimated using calibr...
