In this work, estimating two-dimensional (2-D) angles of arrival for radiating sources in a coherent environment is studied. The concept of spatial smoothing is first extended to a rectangular planar array and a 2-D search function is formed to estimate the source directions. To avoid performing a 2-D search, an approach based on two one-dimensional (1-D) searches is also discussed. This approach uses rows and columns of the rectangular array to perform 1-D searches. To match the data obtained, a 2-D verification is then performed. Computer simulation results for both approaches based on the MUSIC method are presented.
