Compact microphone arrays allow for directional filtering with a minimum of installation space. They are therefore particularly suitable for automotive applications. Typically, compact arrays are realized as differential arrays or filter-and-sum beamformers which both show limited performance in terms of directivity. In this contribution we present a novel system for directional filtering for compact arrays. This system consists of two closely spaced microphones and incorporates an adaptive beamformer as well as a spatial post-filter which is designed to suppress non-stationary noise.
