Generalized sidelobe cancellers for multidimensional separable arrays
The usage of antenna arrays brought innumerable benefits to radio systems in the last decades. Arrays can have multidimensional structures that can be exploited to achieve superior performance and lower complexity. However, the literature has not explored yet all the advantages arising from these features. This paper uses tensors to provide a method to design efficient beamformers for multidimensional antenna arrays. In this work, the generalized sidelobe canceller (GSC) is extended to a multidimensional array to create the proposed R-Dimensional GSC (R-D GSC). The proposed scheme has a lower computational complexity and, under certain conditions, exhibits an improved signal to interference and noise ratio (SINR).
