A robust version of the multiple signal classification (MUSIC) bearing estimation algorithm based on robust statistics is developed for a direct sequence-code division multiple access impulsive noise channel. The proposed subspace algorithm is computed by using the antenna array covariance matrix, which is derived from the robust maximum likelihood estimator of location. Each element of the robust covariance matrix is computed as the sample myriad of a window of the received observations. The MUSIC antenna array scheme is jointly used to mitigate the effects of multipath and impulsive noise. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme significantly outperforms the other linear and nonlinear schemes.
