We propose a novel technique for joint estimation of angle and delay of radio wave arrival in a multipath mobile communication channel using knowledge of the transmitted pulse shape function. Employing an array of sensors to sample the radio received signal, and subsequent array signal processing can provide the characterization of a high-rank channel in terms of the multipath angles of arrival and time delays. Although several works have been reported in the literature for estimation of the…

Joint angle and delay estimation using shift-invariance techniques
The algorithm uses a two-dimensional ESPRIT-like shift-invariance technique to separate and estimate the phase shifts due to delay and direction of incidence with automatic pairing of the two parameter sets.
Joint estimation of time delays and directions of arrival of multiple reflections of a known signal
We present an efficient algorithm for estimating the time delays and the directions-of-arrival (DOAs) of multiple reflections of a known signal. The algorithm is based on an iterative scheme that
Unified channel model for mobile radio systems with smart antennas
The definition of flat fading and frequency-selective fading channels is extended to low-rank and high-rank channels to include the angular domain. By physical reasoning a generic channel model is
Time delay and spatial signature estimation using known asynchronous signals
This paper considers the problem of estimating the parameters of known signals received asynchronously by an array of antennas, and an upper bound on the number of signals whose parameters may be uniquely identified is derived for a number of different cases.

Singular value decomposition and improved frequency estimation using linear prediction
LP estimation of frequencies can be greatly improved at low SNR by singular value decomposition (SVD) of the LP data matrix, as is done in Pisarenko's method and its variants.
