Adaptive beamformers are sensitive to model mismatch, especially when the number of training samples is small or the training samples are contaminated by the signal component. In this paper, we consider an extreme scenario where only a single signal-contaminated snapshot is available for adaptive beamformer design. In such a case, we cannot perform direct inversion or eigen-decomposition of the rank-one sample covariance matrix required in adaptive beamformer design. To address this issue, we formulate a sparsity-constrained covariance matrix fitting problem to estimate the spatial spectrum distribution over the observed spatial domain, which is then used for adaptive beamformer design via the sparse reconstruction of the interference-plus-noise covariance matrix. Simulation results demonstrate the performance advantage of the proposed adaptive beamforming algorithm over other beamforming algorithms suitable for the single-snapshot scenario.
