Abstract:

Optimum array processing, adaptive processing, and adaptive beamforming are terms which have been mentioned in the sonar literature with increasing frequency over the past decade. Are these three terms synonymous. The equations which describe the behavior of this type of signal processing can be long and involved. Stripped of the mathematical details, what are the underlying principles of optimum array processing, adaptive processing and adaptive beamforming This paper presents answers to these questions without matrix algebra.
