High speed long range millimetre-wave (mm-wave) links can be achieved by using wideband hybrid antenna arrays of sub-arrays. However, conventional wideband angle-of-arrival (AoA) estimation and beamforming algorithms are not applicable to the wideband hybrid arrays due to the array architecture difference. In this paper, an adaptive frequency-domain AoA estimation and beamforming algorithm suitable for practical wideband hybrid array of side-by-side sub-arrays is proposed. Mean square error bounds under simplified array configuration and extreme array imperfection condition are also given. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm is robust with low complexity and fast convergence. © 2011 IEEE.
