3Introduction Underwater Acoustic Channel Characteristic Multipath channel: Signals are reflected by different scatters. Normally, signals have been reflected by surface and bottom several times.Fast fading channel: Due to the severe multipath and the shadow water wave, the underwater channel is a time-varying channels under an average power constrain.Frequency selective fading channel: refection of multipath fading channel.High delay: Slow propagation speed for acoustic wave (1500m/s), comparing with the optical or electric-magnetic communication.
4Introduction con’tThe use of multiple antennas can provide gain due toAntenna gain: more receive antennas means more power is collected.Interference gain: interference nulling by beamforming (array gain); interference averaging (to zero) due to independent observations.Diversity gain against fading: receive diversity; transmit diversity.Assume Nt transmit and Nr receive antennaeChannel State Information (CSI) are known for both sideA priority unknown
5Review of Information Theory Channel Capacity Gaussian Channel EntropyFor multivariate, real-valued Gaussian RV’s X1, X2,…, Xn with mean vector μ and covariance matrix K, the differential entropy is Gaussian distribution maximizes the entropy over all distributions with the same covariance, for any RV’s X1, X2,…, Xn with equality if and only if they are Gaussian .
6Review of Information Theory con’t Gaussian Channel Capacity Parallel Gaussian Channels Capacity MIMO channel is a special case of parallel Gaussian channels
7MIMO Channel Capacity MIMO Channel Model  Received signal at jth receiver antenna can be expressed aswhere is the complex channel impulse response (IR) with normalized energy as 1.Matrix Formulationwhere Y(n), X(n) is the signal vector, H(n) is the channel IR matrix. N(n) is the Gaussian noise vector withThe transmitted signal satisfies the average power constraint. (water-filling)
8MIMO Channel Capacity Con’t MIMO Channel Capacity for fast fading channel (ergodic channel) has been derived in . With perfect CSI, which is know at the receiver, the channel capacity iswhere is the average signal-to-noise power ratio at each receiver element.For non-ergodic channel, the channel capacity does not equal to the average maximum mutual information . In such case, the outage capacity is generally used. The outage capacity is associated with and outage probability which gives the a probability that the channel capacity falls below
9Underwater Acoustic MIMO Channel Capacity Basically, the underwater acoustic MIMO channel capacity is the same as the normal MIMO channel capacity .The spatial and time cross correlation will effect the channel capacity . Because the spatial correlation of channel IR depends on the spacing of the element or antennae and the angle spread of the signals, the channel capacity will also depends on those two factors.For the second scenario, the channel capacity is represent by outage capacity to reflect the real channel throughput .

16Conclusion and Future work In this project, I studied the channel capacity for MIMO communication, especially for the underwater acoustic communication. Then I simulated the channel impulse and calculated the capacity from the given functions.Apparently, the channel capacity increase with the number of antennae, also with the signal-to-noise ratio. For spatial correlated channel, the channel capacity increase with the antennae spacing and angle spread. That means the channel capacity increase with the decreasing of the cross-correlation of channel.There are a lot factors which can effect the channel capacity in the underwater environment. We may find more performance for
