An introduction to adaptive array processing
Array processing systems which can respond to an unknown interference environment are currently of considerable interest. The fundamentals of such systems are by no means new - basically they depend on Weiner's filter theory - but application in practice has been, limited both by technology and by the lack of robust algorithms rapid enough for real time operation. Rapid strides in the past decade or so in the twin fields of electronic components and computer technology have changed the situation considerably by offering the possibility of complicated signal processing in real time at economic costs. This has led to an increased interest in adaptive processing and although it is probably still finding its main application in the defence field the civilian applications are growing. As a consequence the literature on this subject has expanded rapidly but as this paper is intended for presentation rather than wide publication the, number of references has been kept to a minimum. Ample references - and indeed good papers - can be found in the special issue of the IEEE Transactions devoted to this subject.
