A fast and simple parameter estimation algorithm, joint azimuth angles, elevation angles and polarization parameters of incident sources for an arbitrary conformal array is proposed. Based on 2-D Discrete Fourier Transform (2-D DFT), the computational complexity can be reduced significantly compared with traditional 2-D space-search MUSIC or polynomial rooting (search-free) methods. The antenna elements can be mounted on arbitrary curved surfaces or platforms. Conformal array characteristics, such as directional radiation patterns of the elements and polarization are taken into consideration. Numerical simulations based on real-world conformal arrays are provided to demonstrate the performance of the proposed method.
