Localization of mobile terminals has received considerable attention in wireless communications. In this letter, we present a covariance shaping least squares (CSLS) estimator using time-of-arrival measurements of the signal from the mobile station received at three or more base stations. It is shown that the CSLS estimator yields better performance than the other LS estimators at low signal-to-noise ratio conditions.
