Statistical resolution limit: application to passive polarized source localization

Abstract : This paper considers the evaluation of the so-called Co-centered Orthogonal Loop and Dipole Uniform and Linear Array (COLD-ULA) performance by mean of the Statistical Resolution Limit (SRL). The SRL adressed herein is based on the estimation accuracy. Toward this end, nonmatrix closed form expressions of the Cramér-Rao Bound (CRB) are derived and thus, the SRL is deduced by an adequat change of variable formula. Finally, concluding remarks and a comparaison between the SRL of the COLD-ULA and the ULA are given. In particular, we show that, in the case where the sources are orthogonal, the SRL for the COLD-ULA is equal to the SRL for the ULA, meaning that it is not a function of polarisation parameters. Furthermore, thanks to the derived SRL, we show that generally the performance of the COLD-ULA is better than the performance of the ULA.
