Potential accuracy of a phase directionfinder with linear antenna array
Abstract
Maximum likelihood estimates of the accuracy of the phasedifference technique of direction finding, using a linear array, are examined. It is assumed that the error source is internal receivernoise. It is shown that dispersion of the estimate is equal to the potential dispersion for two particular cases, when the ambiguity of direction finding is correctly resolved.
