    Abstract—A high-resolution measurement system for the characterization of the delay and angle-of-arrival properties of all significant multipath components on mobile radio channels is presented. The system uses complex impulse response data obtained from a novel 3-D tilted cross switched antenna array as input to an improved version of 3-D Unitary ESPRIT. Results from simulations and measurements show that the approach is capable of accurately characterizing the delay and angle-of-arrival characteristics of the dominant multipath components at moderate urban speeds along a trajectory in mobile propagation environments with high resolution in both azimuth and elevation. Index Terms—Channel sounder, cross arrays, delay estimation, direction of arrival estimation, land mobile radio, mobile communications, radiowave propagation.
