Position estimation using Time of Arrival (ToA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA), and Angle of Arrival (AoA) measurements are the commonly used location techniques. These techniques, using location parameters received from different sources, are based on intersections of circles, hyperbolas, and lines, respectively. The location is determined using standard complex computation methods that are usually implemented in software and needed relatively long execution time. This paper consists of minimizing and simplifying the computing process in the Mobile Station (MS) during its geo-location phase needed especially for handover. This work considers designing EToA as extended version of ToA, following the same principle but using another aspect for the computational process. ⃝ c 2016 The Korean Institute of Communications Information Sciences.
