Large sensor arrays are prone to element failures which can seriously degrade their performance. In the event of sensor failures, conventional non-adaptive re-design of array weights for the resulting non-uniform or even sparse array often leads to undesirable mainlobe-versus-sidelobe level trade-offs. Alternatively, adaptive array processing techniques can be employed but for large arrays it can be compromised by lack of snapshot support in dynamic environments. Recently, an approach called… CONTINUE READING
