      Course Description
    Technically speaking, there is no such thing as a smart antenna. The widely used term "smart antennas" refers to the intelligent manipulation of signals received by an array of antenna elements. Array processing of this form can easily raise the SNR of signals of interest, null-out or suppress interferers, identify the number of active signals and their direction-of-arrival and track the signal sources as they move in space. Due to these fundamental capabilities, array processing is playing a core role in modern mobile communication systems. This course is designed to cover the underlying principles and the present state-of-the-art of smart antennas and array processing algorithms. The main topics of interest are deterministic beamforming, mean-square optimum beamforming, adaptive beamforming and direction-of-arrival estimation. Applications are sought in the context of space-time processing for wireless communications with examples from code-division-multiple-access (CDMA) systems.
