Twodimensional angle and polarization estimation using the ESPRIT algorithm
Abstract
It is shown how the ESPRIT algorithm may be used with a square array of crossed dipoles to estimate both the twodimensional arrival angles and the polarizations of incoming narrowband signals. 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 approach are presented.
