Smart antenna technology has emerged as one of the most efficient techniques in supporting maximum communication link throughput. A smart antenna system with innovative signal processing can enhance the resolution of a signal's direction of arrival estimation. Successful design of Smart antenna is dependent on the efficient performance of DOA estimation algorithm as well as beamforming algorithm. This paper presents a comparative performance study between Classical Beam forming method, MUSIC
