As the signal arrival at the antenna array travels across the different sensors, it encounters a propagation Delay d θ d sin θ wavefront Signal arrival 3 Steering Vector s ( t ) = e- j ϖ t [1 e- j ϖ T ....... e- j ϖ ( M- 1) T ] t The signal vector: Ω = ϖ T = 2 π d λ sin θ Spatial Frequency: θ d d sin θ Reference sensor e j ϖ t e j ϖ ( t- T ) e j ϖ ( t- ( M- 1) T ) 1 M 4 Array Pattern s ( t ) = e- j ϖ t a ( θ ), a ( θ ) = [1 e- j π sin θ ....... e- j ( M- 1) π sin θ ] t Steering vector for d / λ = 0.5 θ Array coefficient vector Array output W = [ w 0 w 1 ........ w M- 1 ] t w M- 1 w 0 y ( t ) = W H s ( t ) = e j ϖ t W H a ( θ ) e j ϖ t SUM 5 Continue G ( θ ) = W H a ( θ ) Array Pattern: Spatial Response: W H a ( θ ) Parameters controlling the Array pattern are • Array Geometry • Array Coefficients • Array Manifold 6 Array Manifold Each antenna responds by a gain and phase to the incident waveform depending on its angle of arrival and frequency a ( θ ) = [ ζ 1 ( θ , f ) ζ 2 ( θ , f ) e- j π sin θ ....... ζ M ( θ , f ) e- j ( M- 1) π sin θ ] t Array Manifold Vector • The complex gain can be obtained by array calibration. M i f i ,..., 2 , 1 ), , ( = θ ζ • The steering vector loses its known structure. 7 Spatial Structures • The spatial structure is given by the array manifold (AM), which is a set of array response vectors indexed by the angles- of-arrival. • The array manifold a( θ ) represents the response of the antenna elements relative to the first element for a wavefront arriving at the carrier frequency from a direction θ . • The AM includes the effect of a number of factors, such as array geometry, elements patterns, inter-element coupling, scattering from antenna support structures. 8 Narrowband Signals Maximum distance traveled (M-1)d ( M- 1) d sin θ Time to travel across the array is smaller than the inverse of the signal bandwidth ( M- 1) d c pp 1/ BW 9 Narrowband Model Assumption...
