A Model of a Shallow Water Hydroacoustical Communication Channel

Goran Hudec


The pulse response of a horizontal hydroacoustical communication channel is measured in shallow water environment at a location in the Adriatic Sea. From the experimental data statistical characteristics of the error and good channel states are extracted for different bit error probabilities, and they are fitted to some descriptive channel models until the chi-square test is satisfied. Application of the model to the testing of data protection codes is illustrated.
