Abstract
An FPGA-based solution is proposed for Adaptive Digital Beamforming for missle defense radars. The FPGA implementation speeds up real-time computations and allows for remote retuning of the algorithm after launch. Support Vector Machines (SVMs) ensures reliable performance in adverse conditions. The proposed solution is as an enabling technology for legacy beamforming hardware.
