    There are many methods for direction finding (DF) of radar targets, while the complexity and time elapsed calculation are their main drawbacks, thus the real time implementation of this methods are difficult. Artificial neural network (ANN) for DF is one of the optimum and good ways to implementation that have better result versus other techniques. In this thesis, direction finding problem for radar targets by using artificial neural networks have been studied. A new method is presented to detect the multiple targets simultaneously, that it can be implemented in digital form easily. Here one-dimensional DF by using uniform linear array (ULA) discussed and formulated, then the proposed... 

    Source enumeration in large arrays based on moments of eigenvalues in sample starved conditions

    , Article IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Systems, SiPS: Design and Implementation, 17 October 2012 through 19 October 2012, Quebec ; October , 2012 , Pages 79-84 ; 15206130 (ISSN) ; 9780769548562 (ISBN) Yazdian, E ; Bastani, M. H ; Gazor, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents a scheme to enumerate the incident waves impinging on a high dimensional uniform linear array using relatively few samples. The approach is based on Minimum Description Length (MDL) criteria and statistical properties of eigenvalues of the Sample Covariance Matrix (SCM). We assume that several models, with each model representing a certain number of sources, will compete and MDL criterion will select the best model with the minimum model complexity and maximum model decision. Statistics of noise eigenvalue of SCM can be approximated by the distributional properties of the eigenvalues given by Marcenko-Pastur distribution in the signal-free SCM. In this paper we use random... 

    Effect of unitary transformation on Bayesian information criterion for source numbering in array processing

    An approach based on unitary transformation for the problem of estimating the number of signals is proposed in this study. Among the information theoretic criteria, the authors focus on the conventional Bayesian information criterion (BIC) in the presence of a uniform linear array. The sample covariance matrix of this array is transformed into the real symmetric one by using a unitary transformation. This real symmetric matrix has real eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Therefore its eigenvalue decomposition needs only real computations. Since the eigenvalues of this real symmetric matrix are equal to the eigenvalues of the sample covariance matrix, by replacing them in BIC formula, the term...

    In this paper, we present an antenna array with beam steering capability to characterize MIMO channels over 57-63 GHz frequency band. This uniform linear array is built of six U-slot patch elements which are spaced half wavelength to maximize the beam scanning coverage. Each element can be fed by an individual transceiver to establish a MIMO construction. The system is implemented in fused silica technology to be integrated easily with RFICs and to achieve excellent fabrication tolerance for accurate mm-wave measurements. It can provide 11dBi peak realized gain at broadside and beam steering up to ±40° from broadside in the whole frequency band. © 2018 IEEE
