A method of direction of arrival (DOA) estimation of coherent sources is proposed, which is based on arbitrary plane arrays. After constructing the mathematical model of coherent sources, virtual array transformations and MUSIC algorithm are used to realize the azimuth estimation of coherent sources, which improved the DOA estimation performance greatly. According to the computer simulation, its validity is confirmed.
