Adaptive FIR filter, SNR, MATLAB.


In underwater communication, acoustic signals have been more effective than the radio frequency signals. Hence acoustic waves have been propagates over a very short distances. Hybrid windowing FIR filter with adjustable co-efficient and weight updating block utilized to adjust the filter coefficients This proposed work is focus on underwater ambient noise reduction using proposed variable Adaptive filter. Generally, noise reduction techniques have been developed based on the minimization of SNR such as wavelet based de-noising technique for wind noise reduction with improved SNR of 7dB-10dB.
