In this paper, we propose a new Direction-of-Arrival (DOA) estimator called Conjugate Augmented MUSIC (CAM). The basic idea of CAM is to use the second-order statistics of the received signals to get the conjugate steering matrix. This, together with the steering matrix, is used to find the fourth-order cumulants. From that the source directions are obtained using the MUSIC-like algorithm. CAM can resolve two times the number of directions when compared to MUSIC-like estimator. Moreover, simulation results show that the estimation capacity, angle resolution, immunity to noise, and the number of required snapshots are all better than MUSIC-like algorithm.
