Abstract : In this lecture we present the principles of adaptive beamforming, the problem of estimating the adaptive weights and several associated practical problems, like preserving low sidelobe patterns, using subarrays and GSLC configurations. We explain the detection problem with adaptive arrays and the methods for angle estimation. Finally the methods for resolution enhancement (super-resolution methods) are presented.
