Submarine acoustical communication

SUBMARINE ACOUSTICAL COMMUNICATION NETWORK IN SHALLOW  WATER
(European Commission, D.G. XII, MAST-3 Program, MArine Science and Technology, EC-MAS3 Contract-CT97-0107)


Synthesis of robust digital communication techniques for non stationary transmission channels affected by severe multipath.

  • project co-ordination
  • synthesis of space-time algorithms for multi-channel identification/equalisation and symbol  estimation
  • symbol estimation in the absence of training signals (cycle stationary and blind processing)
  • network access protocols in a high latency environment
  • experimental verification by collecting data at sea in the continental shelf close to the Dutch coast.
