High-resolution beamforming techniques performance analysis
Seven different beamforming techniques (including both conventional and high-resolution types) have been analyzed and compared in order to develop a quantitative relationship between resolution performance on the one hand and detection and the accuracy of bearing estimation on the other. Thetechniques discussed are the Blackman-Tukey Conventional, the Wiener Conventional, the CaponAdaptive and the Maximum Entropy Beamformers, and the Optimal, the Johnson, and the SchmidtEigenvector Methods. Detection performance, accuracy, and resolution of the different techniques are discussed and tabulated
