Abstract : Computer simulation studies of a frequency domain adaptive beamforming algorithm are presented. These simulation studies were conducted to determine the multiple broadband target localization capability and the full angular coverage capability of the algorithm. The algorithm was evaluated at several signal-to-noise ratios with varying sampling rates. The number of iterations that the adaptive algorithm took to reach a minimum estimation error was determined. Results of the simulation studies indicate that the algorithm can localize multiple broadband targets and has full angular coverage capability. Keywords: Frequency domain adaptive beamforming; Signal processing planar array; and Least mean square error.
