One of the most frequent problems in acquisition and telecommunications consists in the removal of disturbances and undesirable phenomena. With our present day spectral obstruction, the methods of traditional temporal filtering appeared ineffective. The signals measurement by array sensors and space filtering is an effective alternative to overcome the preceding problems. Several strategies are necessary to carry out a reliable spatial filtering in a constrained environment. It is then interesting, to design multi-agents model for array sensors and associate a spatial filtering strategy to it.

In this article we present the linear array sensors and the way that we model and implement them as multi-agent system in order to allow their applications for spatial filtering with concurrent acquisitions.
