Locally optimal covariance matrix estimation techniques for array signal processing applications


Previous results on the detection-estimation of more uncorrelated Gaussian sources than sensors in sparse linear antenna arrays reinforces the need for an accurate maximum likelihood (ML) estimation of structured covariance matrices. A lower bound on the maximum likelihood ratio (LR) is introduced and is shown to be effective in assessing nonoptimal… (More)
