Fang Z, Manikas A, DOA and Range Estimation of Multiple Sources Under the Wideband Assumption, IEEE GLOBECOM 2016, Publisher: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), ISSN: 0895-1195
In this paper, two novel channel parameter estimationalgorithms are proposed under the “wideband assumption,”where a wavefront varies significantly when traversing throughthe sensors of the array. The first covariance-based approachutilizes the cross-covariance matrix between two subvectors of thereceived signal vector and the singular value decomposition to reconstructthe parameter-dependent signal subspace. Meanwhile,the second reference-based approach employs the rotation of thearray reference point so that the estimation techniques underthe “narrowband assumption” are readily applicable. Throughcomputer simulation studies, the two proposed approaches areshown to successfully estimate the channel parameters under thewideband assumption with outstanding accuracy in terms of theestimation root mean squared error
Fang Z, Manikas A, Arrayed space optical communications: localization of the ground station, IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), Publisher: IEEE
In this paper, a novel ground station localizationalgorithm is proposed for space optical communications using ar-ray processing and a set of celestial objects of known locations inthe global coordinate system. First, the ground station estimatesthe directions of this set of celestial objects relative to its localcoordinate system using the sunlight reflected by these celestialobjects. Then, the ranges of the celestial objects and the locationand orientation of the ground station are estimated by solvingsystems of nonlinear and linear equations. The performance ofthe proposed approach is assessed through computer simulationstudies. It is shown to estimate the location and orientation ofthe ground station successfully with excellent accuracy.
Gabillard T, Sridhar V, Manikas A, Capacity loss and antenna array geometry, IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), Publisher: IEEE
The impact of antenna array geometry on it’s ability to migrate interference, and hence the channel capacity, is a topic that is seldom studied and is crucial to future systems that will employ large arrays. In this paper, for the worst-case scenario where interferers are located spatially close to the desired users, the “capacity loss” is defined and expressed as a function of array geometry and propaganda environment. Based on the analytical results, simulation studies of the capacity loss are presented for different array geometries and various key insights on antenna array design are highlighted.

Sridhar V, Manikas A, Target Tracking with a Flexible UAV Cluster Array, IEEE GLOBECOM 2016, Publisher: IEEE
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) cluster applications,for tasks such as target localisation and tracking, are required tocollect and utilise the data received on “flexible” sensor arrays,where the sensors, i.e. UAVs in this scenario, have time-variantpositions. In this paper, using a parametric channel model, a UAVcluster mobility model and a kinematic model of the targets, anextended Kalman based state space model is proposed that tracksthe unknown UAV positions and target parameters snapshot bysnapshot. Simulation studies illustrating the tracking capabilitiesof the proposed technique have been presented.
Venieris E, Manikas A, Near-far field multipath spatial-temporal localisation, IEEE International Conference on Communications 2017, Publisher: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), ISSN: 0536-1486
In this paper, a passive array processing algorithm isproposed for localising the near-far field multipaths of the desiredsignal in the presence of co-channel interference. By expressingthe unknown path delay as a function of the path’s range,the proposed spatiotemporal localisation algorithm estimates thelocations of all the multipath reflectors of the desired signalsource using a subspace-type cost function. The performance ofthe proposed algorithm is evaluated through computer simulationstudies.

In this paper, with the objective of tracking the trajectoryof multiple mobile targets, a novel spatiotemporal-state-space modelis introduced for an array of sensors distributed in space. Underthe wideband assumption, the proposed model incorporates the arraygeometry in conjunction with crucial target parameters namely (i) ranges,(ii) directions, (iii) velocities and (iv) associated Doppler effects. Computersimulation studies show some representative examples where the proposedmodel is utilised to track the locations of sources in space with a veryhigh accuracy.

Gabillard T, Sridhar V, Manikas A, 2015, Comparative Study of 2D Grid Antenna Array Geometries for Massive Array Systems, IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, Publisher: IEEE
In upcoming trends of wireless communications, such as massive MIMO, the number of antennas at the transmitter(TX) and receiver (RX) are expected to increase dramatically, aiming to provide a substantial improvement in system performance and spectral efficiency. However, an increase in the number of antennas also results in an increase in hardware, computational complexity and energy dissipation of the MIMO system. Therefore, the antenna array geometry plays a crucial role in the overall system performance. This paper is concerned with planar antenna array geometries with emphasis given to the family of 2D "grid" arrays and presents an insight into the relation between the array geometry and various performance metrics, such as detection, resolution and data-rate maximization, that may be used in different applications.

This book is concerned with adaptive sensor array processing and in particular with superresolution beamformers and their applications to sonar and radar. In the book both narrowband and wideband beamformers will be presented as well as space-only and spatiotemporal beamformers, which may operate in the presence of clutters and jammers. Furthermore, transmitter (Tx), receiver (Rx) and both Tx/Rx (MIMO) beamformers will be considered and their role in radar and sonar designs will be discussed. Design, integration and auto-calibration approaches incorporating off-the-shelf components will be also presented.

Several methods have been developed which allow the estimation of the location of an existing source with considerable accuracy in the absence of multipaths. However, if, in addition to the Line-of-Sight (LOS) path, non-LOS (NLOS) paths are also present, then all existing localisation algorithms dramatically fail to estimate the location of the source. In this paper, a passive array processing algorithm is proposed, which, if used prior to a localisation approach, suppresses all the multipath contributions in the received signal except for that of the LOS path. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated through computer simulation studies.
Efstathopoulos G, Manikas A, 2013, Existence and Uniqueness of Hyperhelical Array Manifold Curves, IEEE Journal on Selected Topics in Signal Processing, Vol: Special Issue on Differential Geometry in Signal Processing
Significant open issues in array processing have been successfully investigated based on the concept of the array manifold and taking advantage of our understanding of its physical geometrical shape in an N-dimensional complex space - using differential geometry. Array ambiguities, arrayuncertainties, array design and performance characterisation are just some of the areas that have benefited from this approach.Unfortunately, the investigation of the shape of the array manifold itself for most but a few array geometries has been proven to be extremely complex and restrictive - especially in the numberof geometric properties that can actually be calculated. However, special array geometries have been identified, for which the arraymanifold curve assumes a specific “hyperhelical” shape. This is one of the most important manifold shapes and its properties greatly simplifies its geometric analysis and, consequently, the analysis of the associated array os sensors. Hence, the goal of this paper is twofold: to provide the necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of array manifold curves of hyperhelical shape; and to determine which array geometries can actually give rise to manifold curves of thisshape

Manikas A, Commin H, Sleiman A, 2013, Array Manifold Curves in C^N and their Complex Cartan Matrix, IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing, Vol: 7, Pages: 670-680, ISSN: 1932-4553
The differential geometry of array manifold curves has been investigated extensively in the literature, leading to numerous applications. However, the existing differential geometric framework restricts the Cartan matrix to be purely real and so the vectors of the moving frame U(s) are found to be orthogonal only in the wide sense (i.e. only the real part of their inner product is equal to zero). Imaginary components are then accounted for separately using the concept of the inclination angleof the manifold. The purpose of this paper is therefore to present an alternativetheoretical framework which allows the manifold curve in CN to be characterised in a more convenient and direct manner. A continuously differentiable strictly orthonormal basis is established and forms a platform for deriving a generalised complexCartan matrix with similar properties to those established under the previous framework. Concepts such as the radius of circular approximation, the manifold curve radii vector and the frame matrix are also revisited and rederived under this new framework.
