Degradation of covariance reconstruction-based robust adaptive beamformers

Abstract

We show that recent robust adaptive beamformers, based on reconstructing either the noise-plus-interference or the data covariance matrices, are sensitive to the noise-plus-interference structure and degrade in the typical case when interferer steering vector mismatch exists, often performing much worse than common diagonally loaded sample covariance matrix… (More)
