For about two decades, many fourth order (FO) array processing methods have been developed for both direction finding and blind identification of non-Gaussian signals. One of the main interests in using FO cumulants only instead of second-order (SO) ones in array processing applications relies on the increase of both the effective aperture and the number of(More)
For about two decades, numerous methods have been developed to blindly identify overdetermined (P/spl les/N) mixtures of P statistically independent narrowband (NB) sources received by an array of N sensors. These methods exploit the information contained in the second-order (SO), the fourth-order (FO) or both the SO and FO statistics of the data. However,(More)
The problem of Blind Identification of linear mixtures of independent random processes is known to be related to the diagonalization of some tensors. This problem is posed here in terms of a non conventional joint approximate diagonalization of several matrices. In fact, a congruent transform is applied to each of these matrices, the left transform being(More)
Static linear mixtures with more sources than sensors are considered. The Blind Source Identification (BSI) of underdetermined mixtures problem is addressed by taking advantage of Sixth Order (SixO) statistics and the Virtual Array (VA) concept. It is shown how SixO cumulants can be used to increase the effective aperture of an arbitrary antenna array, and(More)
This paper provides a new analytic expression of the bias and RMS error (root mean square) error of the estimated direction of arrival (DOA) in the presence of modeling errors. In , first-order approximations of the RMS error are derived, which are accurate for small enough perturbations. However, the previously available expressions are not able to capture(More)
The problem of passive localization is commonly solved by independently measuring intermediate parameters (such as angles of arrival (AOA), times of arrival (TOA)…) on several multiple sensors base stations in a first step. In a second step, the transmitted parameters are then used to estimate the position. Recently, studies proposed new promising(More)
In array processing, the far-field assumption of planar wavefronts is widely used by direction of arrival (DOA) estimators but not always satisfied. In this letter, we introduce a new method for bearing-range estimation, which extends classical subspace-based bearing estimators to a curved wavefront context. The bearing estimation is provided by a(More)
