Many previous works state that a multiple Sidelobe canceller (MSLC) with two auxiliary antennas is successful in suppressing two interference signals received simultaneously by sidelobes of a main antenna. In this paper, we show that the MSLC does not always guarantee such capability in three dimensional applications where the incident direction of interference signals is defined by two angles (elevation and azimuth). We show the singularity of the autocorrelation matrix for the auxiliary channel signals induces the degradation of the capability by analyzing characteristics of MSLC's in three dimensional applications from the view point of the eigenvalue problem. To overcome this singularity, we propose a novel MSLC controlling the placement of auxiliary antennas by means of switching over three antennas arranged triangularly. Some simulations are conducted to show the effectiveness of the proposed MSLC.
