In this correspondence, we derive a Newton scoring algorithm for the maximum likelihood separation and direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation of constant modulus (CM) signals using a sensors array. We present a rapidly converging scheme for the joint estimation of the signals and their directions based on their CM property. We discuss initialization and show that the complexity is moderate.
