Smart Antennas examines nearly all aspects of array signal processing. It delivers a detailed treatment of antenna array processing schemes, adaptive algorithms to adjust weighting, direction of arrival (DOA) estimation methods, and diversity-combining methods that combat fading and reduce errors. The book discusses the various processor structures suitable for the narrowband field, examining the behavior of both element space and beamspace processors. It then explores adaptive processing, the simple matrix inversion algorithm, constrained least mean squares (LMS), the neural network approach, and more. The text also describes smart antennas that are suitable for broadband signals and presents analyses and techniques suitable for correlated fields in narrowband and broadband signals.
