Abstract

This paper examines the performance of filter bank multicarrier (FBMC) systems for underwater acoustic communications. We evaluate the performance of Filtered Multitone (FMT) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing-Offset Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (OFDM-OQAM) and compare it to that of traditional OFDM. OFDM-OQAM is found to be the most suitable multicarrier technique that can be applied to underwater acoustic communications as it achieves maximum bandwidth efficiency and provides a higher bit rate than its OFDM counterpart due to the absence of a cyclic prefix (CP). We also present a bit error rate (BER) performance evaluation of coded and un-coded OFDM-OQAM for both horizontally and vertically configured acoustic channels.
