Modelling and Simulation of IDMA-OFDM for Underwater Acoustic Communication
The Ocean exhibits phenomenon of changing acoustic signal transmission due to its non-stationary nature. Water columns in between transmitter and receiver are not fixed at any point of time. Thus, designing of a wireless communication systems for underwater applications becomes significantly challenging. The speed of sound in water is 1500 m/s which introduces large delay spread in acoustic signal due to multipath phenomenon. The large time delay causes Inter-symbol Interference; this ISI degrades the performance of many receivers. However orthogonal frequency division multiplexing is multi-tone modulation reduces long time delay spreads of acoustic channels. The interleave division multiple access distinguishes each user with the unique random interleaver code. The IDMA-OFDM is superior design for reducing error bursts in multi-access underwater applications. A Simulink based simulation modell of IDMA-OFDM system has been discussed in this paper. Satisfactory performance of the implementation was observed through analysis of BER with respect to SNR. The results have been concluded by comparing simulated data in BER tool of Simulink.
