Abstract
This paper describes a digital beamforming architecture for nulling a mainlobe jammer and multiple sidelobe jammers while maintaining the angle estimation accuracy of the monopulse ratio. A sidelobe jammer canceling adaptive array is cascaded with a mainlobe jammer canceller, imposing a mainlobe maintenance technique or constrained adaptation during sidelobe cancellation process so the results of sidelobe jammer cancellation process do not distort subsequent mainlobe cancellation process. The sidelobe jammers and the mainlobe jammer are thus cancelled sequentially in separate processes. This adaptive digital beamforming technique is for improving radar processing for determining the angular location of a target, and specifically to an improvement in the monopulse technique so as to maintain accuracy of the monopulse ratio in the presence of jamming by adaptive suppression of jamming before forming the sum and difference beams.
