This contribution deals with the direction of arrival estimation of narrowband signals using an antenna array. Under sparsity constraints the estimation procedure is based on compressed sensing by altering the array factor of the antenna. This approach allows to in fluence directly the incoherence requirement of the sensing matrix. Simulation results are provided to present the performance of the proposed method.
