Characterization of Underwater Acoustic Communication Channels: Statistical Characteristics of the Underwater Multipath Channnels
MetadataShow full item record
Underwater communication and networking have become very essential both for commer-cial and military purposes. The number of research conducted in this field has increased over the past few decades. The need to communicate between sensor nodes in sensor network requires the characterization of underwater acoustic channel. This project focuses on the statistical characterization of an underwater communication channel using real data. This kind of approach of characterizing a channel makes it possible to access the performance of modern digital systems before they are built. The main idea behind this thesis report is to be able to perform simulations on real data using matlab to get reasonable results that can be compared to existing research papers.
