—The Capon beamformer has better resolution and much better interference rejection capability than the standard (data-independent) beamformer, provided that the array steering vector corresponding to the signal of interest (SOI) is accurately known. However, whenever the knowledge of the SOI steering vector is imprecise (as is often the case in practice),(More)
Array processing is widely used in sensing applications for estimating the locations and waveforms of the sources in a given field. In the absence of a large number of snapshots, which is the case in numerous practical applications such as underwater array processing, it becomes challenging to estimate the source parameters accurately. This paper presents a(More)
—We present an efficient carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation algorithm for the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)-based wireless local area networks (WLANs). The packet preamble information we use is based on the high rate WLAN standards adopted by the IEEE 802.11 standardization group. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the(More)
—The standard Capon beamformer (SCB) is known to have better resolution and much better interference rejection capability than the standard data-independent beamformer when the array steering vector is accurately known. However, the major problem of the SCB is that it lacks robustness in the presence of array steering vector errors. In this paper, we will(More)
—The orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing access technique has recently been attracting considerable interest especially for wireless local area networks (WLAN's). In this letter, we consider the joint estimation of the symbol timing, the channel length and the channel-impulse response. A novel estimation algorithm based on maximum-likelihood(More)
