Paper Abstract

A robust focusing matrix, called unitary constrained array manifold focusing, is proposed for the coherent signal-subspace method which is a novel approach for direction finding of broad- band sources. The proposed focusing matrix has robustness against size variations of focusing sectors obtained by preliminary group angle estimates. To quantify information loss due to source focusing, a new measure, relative efficiency index, is introduced. This index is useful in assessing statistical sufficiency of a data-reduced statistic formed by source focusing. The sensitivity issue as well as estimation performance comparisons for various focusing schemes, based on simulations and relative efficiency index, are also presented.
