Broadband underwater acoustic communication signals undergo either a compression or dilation in the presence of relative motion between a source and a receiver. Consequently, underwater acoustic communications with a mobile source/ receiver require Doppler compensation through resampling. However, resampling may not be necessary when a channel-estimate-based time reversal approach is applied with frequent channel updates. Using experimental data (20-30 kHz), it is demonstrated that the performance of time reversal communication without resampling is similar to the case with resampling, along with the benefit of a modest computational saving.
