Paper Abstract

Two different techniques are proposed for implementing an adaptive beamformer using a systolic QR decomposition array based on real rather than complex Givens rotations. These are compared in terms of their computational requirements, sensitivity to phase and amplitude imbalance, and effect on the reception of a desired signal.
