Abstract

In this paper, direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation of a single narrow-band source with uniform linear arrays is addressed. The basic idea is to convert the received data to a correlation sequence which can be modelled as a noisy sinusoid. Then the computationally attractive and accurate generalized weighted linear predictor frequency estimator is applied for DOA determination. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated via computer simulations.
