In a number of direction of arrival (DOA) estimation applications there exists prior knowledge about the sources whose bearings are to be determined. We study the case when this prior information concerns some of the source positions and their correlation state, which is a relevant case in, for example, RADAR scenarios where stationary objects exists in the regions of interest. Traditional DOA methods are not designed to exploit such information, and thus cannot obtain the highest theoretical… CONTINUE READING
