Abstract : Understanding the concepts of spectral estimation may become increasingly important in future radar system design. The purpose of this technical memo is to introduce these concepts. A simple model is formulated using a uniformly spaced linear phased array, and the classical Fourier, Maximum Entropy (ME), and Multiple Signal Classification (MUSIC) techniques are described. The performance of these three techniques is discussed through qualitative comparison.
