Bilinear signal synthesis in array processing.

Multiple source signals impinging on an antenna array can be separated by time-frequency synthesis techniques. Averaging of the time-frequency distributions of the data across the array permits the spatial signatures of sources to play a fundamental role in improving the synthesis performance. This improvement is achieved independent of the temporal characteristics of the source signals and without causing any smearing of the signal terms. Unlike the recently devised blind source separation methods using spatial time-frequency distributions, the proposed method does not require whitening or retrieval of the source directional matrix.
