Low-Complexity Joint 2-D DOA and TOA Estimation for Multipath OFDM Signals

The multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithmis computationally expensive in the application to joint two-dimensional (2-D) direction-of-arrival (DOA) and time-of-arrival (TOA) estimation based on uniform circular array (UCA) using orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) signal. This letter proposed an efficient way to compute the 3-D spatial-temporal spectrum. We extended the manifold separation technique, by which we obtained the 3-D discrete Fourier transform (DFT) form of the spectrum. On this basis, we proposed two 2-D DOA and TOA estimators called FFT-MUSIC and Two-step FFT-MUSIC. The former computed the spectrum by large size fast Fourier transform (FFT) to reduce the grid error in searching DOAs and TOAs. The latter roughly located the DOAs and TOAs by relatively small size FFT, followed by the subspace-based technique for a fine-grained searching within a local grid. Simulation results showed that both estimators can reduce the computation cost by one to two orders of magnitude, as compared to their conventional counterparts, while maintaining a similar accuracy.
