Presentation title: Multicarrier Acoustic Communication in Interference–limited Regimes
Summary of the presentation: Interference-limited regimes occur in underwater acoustic communication scenarios for a variety of reasons: ambient noise levels can be elevated in certain environments, intentional interference can be present in adversarial situations, the signal level can be reduced deliberately so as to achieve security, and multi-user interference can be present in networked systems. In this lecture, we focus on signal detection in such situations, employing a structured coding technique alongside multi-carrier modulation in the form of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). We outline methods for coherent detection, where custom-tailored channel estimation is employed, and for differentially coherent detection, where no channel estimation is needed. Doppler compensation accompanies either method to account for the motion-induced frequency shifting. Upon presenting theoretical considerations that inspire the system design, we discuss the system performance using real data obtained during a mobile acoustic communications experiment.
