Parameterized Cancellation of Partial-Band Partial-Block-Duration Interference for Underwater Acoustic OFDM

Despite that underwater acoustic channels are well known to contain various interferences, research on interference mitigation in underwater acoustic communications has been very limited. In this paper, the authors deal with a wideband Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transmission in the presence of an external interference which occupies partially the signal band and whose time duration is shorter than the OFDM block. They parameterize the unknown interference waveform by a number of parameters assuming prior knowledge of the frequency band and time duration of the interference, and develop an iterative receiver, which couples interference detection via a Generalized Likelihood-Ratio-Test (GLRT), interference reconstruction and cancellation, channel estimation, and data detection.
