Abstract:   (44025 Views)
In an environment such as underwater channel where placing test equipments are difficult to handle, it is much practical to have hardware simulators to examine suitably designed transceivers (transmitter/receiver). The simulators of this kind will then allow researchers to observe their intentions and carry out repetitive tests to find suitable digital coding/decoding algorithms. In this paper, a simplified shallow water digital data transmission system is first introduced. The transmission channel considered here is a stochastic DSP hardware model in which signal degradations leads to a severe distortion in phase and amplitude (fades) across the bandwidth of the received signal. A computer base-band channel model with frequency non-selective feature is derived by the authors [10-11]. This system was based on fullraised cosine channel modelling and proved to be the most suitable for vertical and shortrange underwater communication csdfher), with a reflected path (specula component, when the acoustic hydrophone receives reflected signals from surface and bottom of the sea) and a random path (diffused component, when the acoustic hydrophone receives scattered signals from the volume of the sea). The model assumed perfect transmitter-receiver synchronization but utilized realistic channel time delays, and demonstrated the timevarying characteristics of an underwater acoustic channel observed in practice. In this paper, they are used to provide a full system simulation in order to design an adaptive receiver employing the most advanced digital signal processing techniques in hardware to predict realizable error performances.
