A low computational complexity direction of departure (DOD) and direction of arrival (DOA) estimation method is derived for bistatic multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar. In this method, we propose a novel bistatic MIMO radar geometry with one transmit array and two subarrays at the receive array, based on which the cross-correlation matrix is constructed. The DODs and DOAs can be estimated without eigendecomposition, thereby significantly reduce computational burden. Moreover, the DODs
