Estimation of near-field parameters using spatial time-frequency distributions.

This work deals with the estimation of near-field parameters using passive sensor arrays. A transformation of the array data is proposed which allows the extraction of near-field time-frequency signatures from data containing a mixture of far- and near-field sources. Spatial time-frequency distribution matrices are then used as a means for solving the nearfield parameter estimation problem. The estimation accuracy of the proposed approach is compared to existing methods via simulation analysis. An experimental validation of theoretical ideas is also presented.
