Acoustical array data from the Shallow Water Acoustics experiment was processed to show the feasibility of broadband mode decomposition as a preprocessing method to reduce the effective channel delay spread and concentrate received signal energy in a small number of independent channels. The data were collected by a vertical array designed at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Phase-shift Keying (PSK) m-sequence modulated signals with different carrier frequencies were transmitted at a distance 19.2 km from the array. Even during a strong internal waves activity a low bit error rate was achieved.

Performance analysis of adaptive equalization for coherent acoustic communications in the time-varying ocean environment Preisig, James C. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-07)Equations are derived for analyzing the performance of channel estimate based equalizers. The performance is characterized in terms of the mean squared soft decision error of each equalizer. This error is decomposed into ...
Preisig, James C.; Deane, Grant B. (Acoustical Society of America, 2004-10)The forward scattering of acoustic signals off of shoaling surface gravity waves in the surf zone results in a time-varying channel impulse response that is characterized by intense, rapidly fluctuating arrivals. In some ...
Observed limiting cases of horizontal field coherence and array performance in a time-varying internal wavefield Collis, Jon M.; Duda, Timothy F.; Lynch, James F.; DeFerrari, Harry A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2008-08-28)Using a moored source and horizontal/vertical line array combination, horizontal coherence properties of high signal to noise ratio (>=20 dB) 100–1600 Hz signals have been measured.
