In this paper, we propose a new algorithm of enhancing covariance matrix estimate to be used for estimating the directions-of-arrival (DOAs) of multiple incoherent signals incident on a uniform circular array. The underlying covariance matrix possesses a special theoretical property such as having spatial stationarity. The proposed enhancement approach based on the use of this property is found to provide improved DOA estimates in comparison to the unenhanced MUSIC for narrowband incoherent signals.
