MUSIC algorithm has often used to solve the direction of arrival estimation problem to take advantage of the benefits of beamspace operations, such as reduced computation complexity, reduced sensitivity to system errors, good resolution, reduced bias in the estimation. In this paper, a variant of the beamspace MUSIC algorithm is developed, taking advantage of unitary transformations. In general, the beamspace MUSIC algorithm improves direction of arrival estimation by using reduced order

The unitary beamspace MUSIC algorithm reduces the computational complexity of MUSIC algorithm by using real valued forward and backward, while maintaining the original precision. We use forward backward spatial smoothing technique as the preprocessor of beamspace MUSIC algorithm to recover the reduced rank of the covariance matrix due to the coherence of source signals. Through computer simulations show that the combination of spatial smoothing a beamspace MUSIC can achieve good resolution performance.
