In the present work, a direction of arrival estimator, under spread spectrum reference of signal-assisted radio operating in a Rayleigh fading channel, is proposed. The analysis, which is applied to general receiver antenna array configurations, demonstrates the high performance of the estimator which is due to the double dispreading (code word and reference signal). The probability distribution function of the estimator is extracted and the system’s robustness in regard to large number of interferers is demonstrated.
