Abstract

This paper gives an overview of design and development of adaptive antenna for direction of arrival estimation and beam forming. There are various techniques available now days for DOA estimation using FPGA or DSP processors, by the use of various algorithms which are MUSIC, ESPRIT and Capon etc. Use of FPGA or DSP is more costly, bulky and complex. To resolve these problems a system which is more cost effective and less complex as compared to others is used. In comparison with FPGA or DSP processors the use of Phase detector AD8302 is more reliable, which can compare phase of two received antennas signals and give voltage output. This output is used to compute the angle of arrival of signal on computer, following the use of phase shifter to direct the signal to the desired direction only. This method is more efficient in RADAR as well as in communication technology.
