  • Impulsive noise significantly deteriorates the performance of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)-based underwater acoustic (UWA) communication systems. The pulse blanking (PB) based approach can mitigate the impulsive noise. However, it causes inter-carrier interference (ICI) and signal attenuation to the receiver. In this work, we first show that the ICI introduces pronounced non-Gaussianity to the receiver chain and leads to significant performance degradation. We then propose a non-Gaussianity-aware iterative ICI cancelation scheme to mitigate the adverse impacts of PB. A companding transformation scheme is incorporated into the soft symbol computation to alleviate the non-Gaussianity of the log-likelihood ratios (LLRs) caused by the residual ICI and impulsive noise. Simulation results illustrate that the proposed non-Gaussianity-aware iterative receiver achieves significant performance gains over the conventional non-Gaussianity-agnostic one with even lower computational complexity.
