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...
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...
Measurement reduction for mutual coupling calibration in DOA estimation
Aksoy, Taylan; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2012-05-17)
Mutual coupling is an important source of error in antenna arrays that should be compensated for super resolution direction-of-arrival (DOA) algorithms, such as Multiple Signal Classification (MUSIC) algorithm. A crucial step in array calibration is the determination of the mutual coupling coefficients for the antenna array. In this paper, a system theoretic approach is presented for the mutual coupling characterization of antenna arrays. The comprehension and implementation of this approach is simple leadi...

Direction finding with a circularly rotated antenna
Koc, AT; Sen, E; Tanik, Y (2000-06-09)
In this work, a new algorithm for multiple emitter direction finding by using a single antenna moving along a circular trajectory is proposed. The problem is formulated by taking the Doppler frequency shift, caused by the movement of the antenna. into account, and by assuming that the information, hidden in the incoming signals, does not change in the observation duration. The proposed direction finding algorithm is, therefore, based on single snapshot processing and also on the linear prediction method dev...
