Adaptive Arrays: Algorithms, Architectures and Applications

Course Description

Study in-depth adaptive signal processing algorithms and digital beamforming architectures that can be applied to any type of sensor array, with emphasis on radar and communications applications. Explore adaptive jammer cancellation techniques starting with the Wiener filter. Examine angle-of-arrival estimation with monopulse and super-resolution techniques. Delve into hardware implementation issues and the effects of array errors on performance.
