Estimation of DoA Based on Large-scale Virtual Array Data

Future 5G communication systems operating in the mmwave bands (6-100 GHz) will rely on multi-antenna techniques like beamforming and MIMO 1. Therefore, measurement and description of spatial channel information (direction of arrival DoA, direction of departure DoD) is of high relevance for mm-wave system design and channel modeling.
