Abstract
This paper shows that low-complexity combining techniques such as Equal Gain
Combining (EGC) and Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC) can be employed with multiple input
multiple output (MIMO) systems applied to underwater acoustic (UWA) communications. This
brings added value thanks to the low-complexity receivers and e±cient processing, while achieving
a good performance, even in scenarios with correlation between antennas.
