To cope with the scenario where both uncorrelated sources and coherent sources coexist, a novel algorithm to direction of arrival (DOA) estimation for symmetric uniform linear array is presented. Under the condition of stationary colored noise field, the algorithm employs a spatial differencing method to eliminate the noise covariance matrix and uncorrelated sources, then a Toeplitz matrix is constructed for the remained coherent sources. After preprocessing, a propagator method (PM) is employed to find the DOAs without any eigendecomposition. The number of sources resolved by this approach can exceed the number of array elements at a lower computational complexity. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method.
