Abstract

In this letter, an ultra-wideband (UWB) signal model is considered to estimate the angle-of-arrivals (AOAs) of clusters in an UWB indoor-to-outdoor communication en vironment having random angle spreads. The estimation technique based a well-known MUSIC algorithm is pro posed and the estimates of the AOA and distribution para meters on received clusters are obtained using the proposed technique. The proposed model and estimation technique are verified through computer simulations.
