Time reversal communication over doubly spread channels
The existing time reversal receiver for time-varying channels. In a data block, the channel is assumed to be time-invariant, i.e., . Frequent updates of the channel estimation are needed to track channel variations.
The proposed time reversal receiver over time-varying doubly spread channels. It uses the channel spreading function estimates rather than the channel impulse response estimates. The proposed time reversal receiver has a two-layer structure for coherent summation combining. The inner layer contains rake-like structures. Each rake is composed of fingers to compensate for possible Doppler shifts . The outer layer is multichannel combining.
The complexity-reduced time reversal receiver over time-varying doubly spread channels. It uses the estimates of delay, Doppler and amplitude parameters . The low complexity time reversal receiver has a two-layer structure for coherent summation combining. The inner layer contains rake-like structures. The rake is composed of fingers to compensates for Doppler shifts . The outer layer is multichannel combining.
(Color online) Simulation configuration and acoustic ray paths of an underwater multipath channel. A vertical receiving array (VRA) composed of 16 sensors is deployed 1 km far away from the source. The transmitter is moving towards the VRA with a horizontal velocity m/s. The propagation rays from the source to the first and last sensors are plotted using dashed and solid lines, respectively.
(Color online) The spreading function of the channel between the source and the second sensor (channel 2) obtained by the geometric structure of the transmitter and receiver.
