This paper presents the advantages of using distributed arrays with the beamspace implementation of a wideband Capon algorithm. Distributed arrays have recently demonstrated a decreased sensitivity to environmental coherence loss and array mismatches. In an attempt to build upon this robustness, beamspace preprocessing is applied in this paper. Beamspace allows sector-focused beamforming and reduced computational complexity. A unique property of this implementation of beamspace, namely being… CONTINUE READING
