Direct-adaption based bidirectional turbo equalization for multiple-input multiple-output underwater acoustic communications

A direct-adaption based bidirectional turbo equalizer (DA-BTEQ) is proposed for multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) underwater acoustic (UWA) communications. Abandoning the traditional channel estimation process, the proposed DA-BTEQ works in a direct-adaption mode and is implemented with bidirectional soft-decision feedback equalizer (SDFE) to suppress… CONTINUE READING
