Summary: 
The conventional AOA estimation schemes assume multiple antennas, which usually causes high-cost estimation systems. Moreover, the schemes are very vulnerable to multi-path interferences. In this letter, a novel scheme is proposed for the efficient AOA estimation. The scheme is based on cyclic pilot symbols, which guarantees the use of a single antenna and the robustness over multi-path interferences.
