Sensor location uncertainty can severely degrade the accuracy of direction-finding systems. An eigenstructure-based method for simultaneously estimating directions of arrival (DOA) and sensor locations is developed to alleviate this problem. The technique does not require calibration sources at known positions, and can handle nondisjoint sources (i.e., sources occupying the same frequency band and the same time interval). The procedure is guaranteed to converge. Numerical examples and Monte Carlo simulations are used to study the performance of the proposed technique.
