The performance of the Matrix Pencil Method (MPM) and well known root-multi signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm for high resolution direction of arrival (DOA) estimation was discussed. MPM is a variation of the eigen-structure approach and it uses the input pencil matrix instead of the input covariance matrix. By mapping the noise components to the null space. The signal components can be distinguished exactly. Simulation results show that the MPM has a superior ability of discriminating closely target from a single target to the root-MUSIC algorithm.
