Some conventional beamformers require the direction of the desired signal. The performance of such beamformers can substantially be degraded even in the presence of small error on the directional information. In this letter, we propose a prefilter-type beamforming scheme robust to directional error by employing a simple compensator. The performance of the proposed scheme is verified by computer simulation.
