Summary: 
This paper proposes an adaptive microphone array using blind deconvolution. The method realizes an signal enhancement based on the combination of blind deconvolution, synchronized summation and DSA (Delay-and-Sum Array) method. The proposed method improves performance of estimation by the iterative operation of blind deconvolution using a cost-function based on the coherency function.
