This paper addresses the problem of coherent/fully correlated source localization using vector sensor arrays. A novel method for "decorrelating" the incident signals is presented. The method is based on vector sensor smoothing (VSS) and enables the use of eigenstructure-based techniques, which require uncorrelated or partially correlated signals. The method is implemented as a preprocessing stage before applying eigenstructure-based techniques, such as MUSIC. The performance of the proposed VSS preprocessing combined with MUSIC is evaluated and it is shown that it asymptotically achieves the Cramer-Rao bound.
