A new method is proposed to estimate the direction-of-arrival (DOA) based on uniform linear array sampling and named as sparsity and temporal correlation exploiting (SaTC-E). By exploiting the structure information of source signals, including spatial sparsity and temporal correlation of sources, SaTC-E accomplishes DOA estimation with superior performance via block sparse bayesian learning methodology and grid refined strategy. SaTC-E is applicable into time-varying manifold scenario, such as wideband sources, time-varying array, provided that the array manifold matrix is determinable. It has improved performance with some other merits, including superior resolution, requirement for a few snapshots, no knowledge of source number, and applicability to spatially and temporally corrected sources. Real data tests and numerical simulations are carried out to demonstrate the advantages of SaTC-E.
