Auto-Calibration of Co-located Uniform Linear Array Antennas
Paper i proceeding, 2019
An algorithm for auto-calibration of a group of co-located uniform linear array antennas is presented. If the number of signal sources are known and, for at least one array, the ratio of the gains between two consecutive antenna elements is known, the individual unknown antenna gains can be estimated. The method is based on determining the antenna calibration parameters such that a matrix built from the array snapshots has a given rank. A numerical example illustrates the performance of the method. The numerical results suggest that the method is consistent in SNR.
