Two different beamforming approaches in space division multiple access (SDMA) for mobile satellite communications: switched-beam antennas and adaptive array antenna systems are considered. The algorithm that meets both the low computational complexity and high convergence requirements in the adaptive array antenna system of SDMA are developed. The hardware implementation of adaptive algorithm is considered as well.
