In this paper, a robust beamforming method is proposed. This method can be viewed as a LCMV beamformer with its response vector further optimized. To generate a better response vector, it is first established as a non-convex quadratically constrained quadratic programming problem, and then is transformed into a semidefinite programming problem which can be efficiently and exactly solved via semidefinite relaxation. This method outperforms the traditional LCMV beamformer with lower sidelobe and… CONTINUE READING
