This paper presents an improved eigenstructure-based method for estimating the direction of arrival (DOA) of received signal in uniform circular-array, in the presence of sensor gain and phase uncertainties. A simple sensor gain and phase uncertainties calibration method, which does not require any prior knowledge of the DOAs, but also being capable of eliminating the DOA estimation ambiguity, is proposed. The performance of the proposed method is demonstrated by some representative computer simulation.
