Adaptive Beamforming Algorithm for Smart WiMAX Antenna

The estimation of high spatial resolution of the desired signal is the main problem in wireless communication (mainly in WiMax antenna application). In this paper, the smart antenna for WiMax application is analyzed by detecting the main beam towards the desired source signal (by adjusting the weighted array values) using adaptive beamforming algorithms like Least Mean Square (LMS) algorithm, Normalized Least Mean Square (NLMS) algorithm, Recursive Least Square (RLS) Algorithm, Constant Modulus Algorithm (CMA) and CMA-NLMS Algorithm based on 3.5 GHz, which is a WiMAX standard frequency and it also deals with the generation of deep nulls in the direction of interference signals by using MATLAB software.
