This paper proposes a new direction of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm that can rapidly estimate the DOAs of incidence signals using a pseudocovariance matrix even under coherent interference environments. The conventional multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm, which should estimate a covariance matrix, cannot perform a DOA estimation until it acquires the covariance matrix. In addition, the MUSIC algorithm cannot be used under rapidly changing or correlated interference environments. In contrast, the proposed algorithm can obtain a bearing response after acquiring the pseudocovariance matrix based on a single snapshot. Signal incidence angles can then be accurately estimated by combining the bearing response and the location of pattern s. Accordingly, the proposed algorithm can rapidly estimate the DOAs of signals even when they are correlated.
