This paper proposes a beamforming scheme for suppressing coherent interference with an array of arbitrary geometry. The scheme first uses estimates of the source directions to construct a transformation, which removes the desired signal while retaining the coherent interference. Optimum beamforming is then performed on the transformed data containing only interference and noise to produce the maximum output signalto-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR). Analysis and numerical results demonstrate that the proposed complementally transformed beamformer significantly outperforms the conventional multiply constrained minimum variance (MCMV) beamformers.
