This letter considers the design of a two-stage direction of arrival (DOA) scheme for radar systems.

Abstract

This letter considers the design of a two-stage direction of arrival (DOA) scheme for radar systems. Precisely, at the first stage a sparse recovery approach is used to obtain both DOA and complex amplitude estimates of the incoming signal. Since the DOA is evaluated on a predefined grid of bins sampling the antenna azimuth mainbeam, at the second stage, a closed-form complex-valued parabolic interpolation is performed to refine it. By doing so, the angle accuracy is improved, but at the same time maintaining fixed the overall computational complexity. Numerical results show the enhancement provided by the proposed procedure to the initial sparse recovery method.
