Aiming at the problem that the anisotropic noise seriously interferes with the accuracy of underwater target DOA estimation, this paper proposed a high-precision DOA estimation method for underwater targets based on acoustic energy flux vector compensation. The method was based on the joint information processing technology of sound pressure and particle velocity, and the anisotropic noise source distribution model was obtained while effectively reducing the influence of isotropic noise. The anisotropic noise was vector compensated according to the anisotropic noise field acoustic energy flow model, which further suppressed the anisotropic noise and achieved the purpose of high-precision estimation. The numerical simulation results showed that below 20 dB the accuracy of the method was higher than that of DOA estimate of conventional complex intensity processor with the highest precision increased by 21%.
