    Abstract

    Applications such as broadband angle of arrival estimation require the implementation of accurate broadband steering vectors, which generally rely on fractional delay filter designs. These designs commonly exhibit a rapidly decreasing performance as the Nyquist rate is approached. To overcome this, we propose a filter bank based approach, where standard fractional delay filters operate on a series of frequency-shifted oversampled subband signals, such that they appear in the filter's lowpass region. Simulations demonstrate the appeal of this approach.
