Direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) techniques for low probability of intercept (LPI) and multi-user communications applications for underwater acoustic communications are investigated. Two promising receivers, a RAKE based receiver and a hypothesis-feedback equalization based architecture are considered. The performance of the proposed receiver structures are compared based on simulations and also actual field test data.
