In order to resolve the problem of joint direction of departure (DOD) and direction of arrival (DOA) estimation in bistatic MIMO array, a dimensional reduced-Capon method based on Taylor series expansion and signal subspace is proposed in this paper. Firstly, the Taylor series expansion of the steering vector is used to reduce the two-dimensional (2D) spectrum peak searching of Capon method to one-dimensional searching. Then, the DOD estimator can be achieved via Lagrange multiplier by

Hence, the estimated DOD and DOA are obtained automatically paired. And also, the proposed method can avoid the high computational complexity of MIMO Capon method. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
