Using super resolution direction of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm to reduce the resolution angle is an effective method for passive radar seeker (PRS) to antagonize non-coherent radar decoy. Considering the power and correlation property between radar and non-coherent decoy, an improved subspace DOA estimation method based on traditional subspace algorithm is proposed. Because this new method uses the invariance property of noise subspace, compared with traditional MUSIC algorithm, it shows not only better resolution in condition of closely spaced sources, but also superior performance in case of different power or partially correlated sources. Using this new method, PRS can distinguish radar and non-coherent decoy with good performance. Both the simulation result and the experimental data confirm the performance of the method.
