Summary: 
This letter presents an adaptive beamformer robust to random steering errors, based on the projection of received signals onto the orthogonal complement of the interference subspace. In the presence of random steering errors, to prevent the suppression of the desired signal, the proposed beamformer effectively finds basis vectors for the estimation of the interference subspace.
