Abstract:

The Matrix Pencil Approach 1 was shown to be an effective and efficient method for estimating the angles of arrival of multiple narrowband sources. It is classified as non search procedure. Therefore, it is computationally less complicated and eliminates problems encountered in search procedures with regard to memory storage and system calibration. Having collected the data from the outputs of a linear uniformly spaced array consisting of m sensors, the objective is to estimate the locations of the d sources d m. The information about the parameters of interest are contained in the rank reducing values of a matrix pencil generated from the set of data.
