A New Communication Scheme Implying Amplitude Limited Inputs and Signal Dependent Noise: System Design, Information Theoretic Analysis and Channel

Abstract I propose a new communications scheme where signature signals are used to carry digital data by suitably modulating the signal parameters with information bits. One possible application for the proposed scheme is in underwater acoustic (UWA) communications; with this motivation, I demonstrate how it can be applied in UWA communications. In order to do that, I exploit existing parameterized models for mammalian sounds by using them as signature signals. Digital data is transmitted by mapping vectors of information bits to a carefully designed set of parameters with values obtained from the biomimetic signal models. To complete the overall system design, I develop appropriate receivers taking into account the specific UWA channel models. I pr... (more)
