A new method for the estimation of the signal subspace and noise subspace based on time-frequency signal representations is introduced. The proposed approach consists of the joint block-diagonalization (JBD) of a set of spatial timefrequency distribution matrices. Once the signal and noise subspaces are estimated, any subspace based approach, including the multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm, can be applied for direction of arrival (DOA) estimation. Performance of the proposed time-frequency MUSIC (TF-MUSIC) for an impinging chirp signal using three different kernels is numerically evaluated.
