We propose an algorithm for processing the signals received by a multichannel amplitude monopulse direction-finding system, which allows one to estimate the radiation-source number in the operating region of space. The decision on the number of sources is made on the basis of the threshold method. The threshold value is determined using the criterion of minimum of the sum of the conditional error probability.
