In this letter we propose an adaptive beamforming algorithm that efficiently suppresses interferences using a structured interference covariance matrix. The proposed algorithm provides high performance by exploiting angle diversity, especially in cellular mobile environments where the angular spread of a received signal is relatively small. We verify the superiority of the proposed algorithm to the well known linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) and reference signal-based algorithms.
