Communication over Doppler spread channels. II. Receiver characterization and practical results
Additional Document Info
A receiver for coherent communication through underwater communication channels is analyzed. The receiver performance and stability versus delay spread, Doppler spread, and signal-to-noise ratio is quantified. The stability is governed by the ill-conditioning of a correlation matrix estimate and it sets the limit on how many taps should be used for a channel with a given number of degrees of freedom. The receiver is used extensively on both simulated and real data that are Doppler spread, and good performance in these channels is verified.
