In direction of arrival estimation, the locations of point sources are usually assumed to be fixed during the observation of data, which is reasonable in many cases. If the locations of the point sources are perturbed due to some reasons in a statistical way during the observed period and the signal sources are not far away from receiver array, however, direction of arrival estimation methods based on the fixed point source assumption may provide with incorrect results. In this paper, we propose a perturved-location source model. Under the model, an estimation method based on eigen-decomposition is investigated. In addition, the asymptotic distributions of the estimation errors of the parameters are obtained to show the statistical properties of the parameters are obtained to show the statistical properties of the estimation method.
