An approach for direction-of-arrival estimation is presented that relies on a multibeam antenna. The antenna provides a pre-defined set of radiation patterns with distinct main directions. The approach considers only magnitudes of a received signal after its decomposition by means of a beam-forming network. Its application to measured signals obtained from an experimental setup is discussed, revealing that the resolution of the direction estimated is not limited by the beamwidth of the radiation patterns.
