This letter discusses the problem of direction of departure (DOD) and direction of arrival (DOA) estimation for multi-input multi-output (MIMO) radar, and derives a reduced-dimension multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm therein. The proposed algorithm, which only requires one-dimension search, can avoid the high computational cost within two-dimension MUSIC (2D-MUSIC) algorithm. We illustrate that the algorithm has better performance ESPRIT algorithm, and has very close performance to 2D-MUSIC algorithm. Further our algorithm requires no pair matching. Simulation results verify the usefulness of our algorithm.
