Angle and polarization estimation using ESPRIT with a polarization sensitive array
Abstract
It is shown how estimation of signal parameters via rotational invariance techniques (ESPRIT) may be used to estimate both the arrival directions and the polarizations of incoming plane waves with a uniform linear array of crossed dipoles. The ESPRIT algorithm exploits the invariance properties of such an array so that both angle and polarization estimates may be computed. Some typical examples showing the use of this method are presented.
