In previous works the authors introduced the Neural Network (NN) Direction of Arrival (DoA) estimation method for a Switched-Beam DS-CDMA system. In this paper the method’s performance has been significantly improved, enabling its application not only to the desired signal’s main path but also to its strong multipaths.
