In this paper, we propose a passive array calibration method based on the adaptive hybrid algorithm (AHA) for the engineering applications of high-frequency surface wave radar (HFSWR). This method converts array error estimation into joint estimation of multi-parameters and gets the optimal solution estimation by using improved hybrid algorithm. Simulation results and field experiment data show that this method significantly improves the performance of spatial spectrum algorithm in the array
