Abstract
Areté Associates proposes improving VLF channel capacity, bit error rate, and range of operations for submarines and supporting aircraft. By implementing adaptive cancellation of atmospheric noise, the SNR of the received signal will be enhanced as much as 6dB at the VLF receiver. The noise suppression algorithm will require no modification to existing receiver hardware and will apply to VLF receivers aboard E-4B, E-6B, and submarine platforms.
