Maritime wireless communication is different from terrestrial wireless communication, due to difference of environments. Nevertheless technologies based on WiMAX (IEEE 802.16j) for ship to ship maritime communication promised to deliver high data rates over large distances and deliver multimedia services and are expected to use e-Navigation system. This paper focuses to simulate on IEEE 802.16j for ship to ship maritime communication under various sea states. The authors describe BER level according to sea states under Rician fading channel model. BER patterns are designed using MATLAB.
