The objective of this research is to compare the performance of the Matrix Pencil Method (MPM) and well known root-MUSIC algorithm for high resolution DOA estimation. Performance of each technique in terms of the probability of resolution and SNR in the presence of noise is investigated. Simulation results show that the MPM has a superior resolution to the root-MUSIC algorithm.
