Abstract

In smart antenna systems, mutual coupling between elements can significantly degrade the processing algorithms [1]. In this paper mutual coupling effects on Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm (MN-MUST) has been studied. MN-MUST algorithm applied to the Uniform Circular Array (UCA) geometry for the first time. The validity of MN-MUST algorithm in the presence of mutual coupling has been proved for both Uniform Linear Array (ULA) and UCA. Simulation results of MN-MUST algorithm are provided for UCA for the first time. The presence of mutual coupling degraded the MN-MUST algorithm performed in the absence of mutual coupling, as expected.
