In this paper, a novel two-dimensional direction of arrival (2-D DOA) estimation method is proposed based on a new array configuration when uncorrelated and coherent signals coexist. The DOAs of uncorrelated signals are estimated using the non-zero eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors of the DOA matrix (DOAM) combined with our proposed criterion. Meanwhile, we can form a new matrix without the information of uncorrelated signals. Then the coherent signals are resolved with the redefined DOAM that is constructed by the smoothed matrices of the new matrix. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method. Other arrays that contain multiple identical central-symmetric subarrays (e.g. uniform rectangular arrays) can also be applied with our method.
