© 2015 IEEE. In this paper, basics of Direction of Arrival (DOA) estimation techniques were reviewed along with simulated results. It justifies the pros and cons of each technique. The purposes of using smart antenna system in this paper are regarded with the respect of DOA estimation, Path Delays estimation, and accurate channel estimation between a transmitter and an array of receivers. Considering the uplink transmission system, a source antenna transmits a signal and a group of antennas placed uniformly receives the signal. Then the target was to perform the common DOA estimation techniques to analyze the source signal. Since the Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the currently available standard, this model was used to estimate the channel with the help of a 2D harmonic model. Spatial Channel Model was considered for the simulation and finally, a uniform rectangular array model is compared with a multipath channel equation to estimate the channel.
