The low level of received signals power makes Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receivers vulnerable to many classes of disturbing signals. Among them, narrow band interference (NBI) might cause serious receiver performance degradation. Cancellation of NBI can be implemented by using notch filters (NF), which are controlled by two parameters: the notch frequency, which specifies the band center, and the notch bandwidth, which defines the spectrum area to be removed. The literature on the topic focuses on adapting the notch frequency, without estimating the filter bandwidth. This paper proposes a method able to determine both the notch parameters, optimizing the interference suppression. The performance analysis shows a good improvement by using the adaptive bandwidth notch filter.
