This paper considers the design of a linear array of antennas used to jointly determine the range and direction-of-arrival (DOA) of a single emitter in the close proximity of the array. The Cramér-Rao bound (CRB) associated with this problem is derived and compared for some different configurations of the array elements. The results indicate that in order to minimize the CRB for the DOA, the sensors should be clustered at the ends of the array. On the other hand, to minimize the CRB on the range estimate, it is advantageous to spread out the sensors along the array baseline.
