An adaptive beam former is a device, which is able to steers and modifies an array's beam pattern in order to enhance the reception of a desired signal, while simultaneously suppressing interfering signals through complex weight selection. However, the weight selection is a critical task to get the low Side Lobe Level (SLL) and low beam width. It needs to have a low SLL and low beam width to reduce the antenna's energy radiation/reception ability in unintended directions. The weights can be chosen to minimize the SLL and to place nulls at certain angles.
