Array Processor Performance Under Directional Uncertainty


Journal Article

Detection performance of four candidate receiver structures for the signal known except for direction (SKED) array problem is investigated. Included are the Bayes optimal detector, two estimate and plug structures, and a fixed estimate structure. Estimators considered are the maximum likelihood (ML) and maximum a posteriori (MAP). Performance degradation from optimal for the estimate and plug structures considered is shown to be significantly more severe the larger the array size.
