With Space Division Multiple Access SDMA schemes employing digital signal processing algorithms in its smart antenna systems, it is possible to improve the system capacity of modern wireless communication systems by enabling user’s angular separation. Angular separation ability enhances reception in Signal-of-Interest direction and minimizes interference in Signal-of-Not-Interest direction. Direction of Arrival DoA algorithms are used for estimation of a number of incident plane waves on the antenna array and their incidence angles. This paper compares performance of three DoA algorithms: MUSIC, root-MUSIC and Capon applied on the uniform linear array in the presence of uncorrelated white noise. The simulation results show that MUSIC outperformed root-MUSIC and Capon in both required number of snapshots and number of array elements as well as in signal-to-noise ratio requirements.
