Direct data domain least square (D3LS) approach has been developed so quickly for array signal processing. Because, only a single data snapshot instead of multiple needed to form a covariance matrix in conventional algorithms. Unfortunately it is generally assumed that one knows the direction of arrival (DOA) of the signal of interest (SOI) and the goal is to estimate its complex amplitude in the presence of jammer, clutter and noise This paper proposes a novel direction of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm based on D3LS approach using the property of minimum of the sum of the norm of the adaptive weights that can be used as an indicator to estimate the DOA of the SOI in adaptive algorithms. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can estimate the DOAs of signals and its complex amplitude accurately in the presence of interference, clutter and noise.
