This paper deals with the problem of adaptive reconstruction and identification of nonstationary AR processes with randomly missing observations. Existent methods use a direct realization of the filter. Therefore, the estimated parameters may not correspond to a stable all-pole filter. In addition, when the probability of missing a sample is high, existent methods may converge slowly or even fail to converge. We propose, at our knowledge, the first algorithm based on the lattice structure for online processing of signals with missing samples. It is an extension of the RLSL algorithm to the case of missing observations, using a Kalman filter for the prediction of missing samples. The estimated parameters guarantee the stability of the corresponding all-pole filter. In addition it is robust to high probabilities of missing a sample. It offers a fast parameter tracking even for high probabilities of missing a sample. It is compared to the Kalman pseudolinear RLS algorithm, an already proposed algorithm using a direct realization of the filter. The proposed algorithm shows better performance in reconstruction of audio signals.
