The Deep-sea shows the phenomenon of varying acoustic sign communication because of non-stationary scenery. At any point of the period, water provisions among source and receiver are not static. Accordingly, for underwater acoustic tenders scheming of a wireless communication structure turn out to be significantly inspiring. In water, the speediness of sound is approximately 1500 m/s due to the multipath phenomenon; this presents great delay. The great period delay originates Inter-symbol Interference; this, in turn, reduces numerous receivers' performance. The objective of this paper is to present Interleaver Division Multiple Access Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing Multiple Input Multiple Output technique, with Turbo code combined with Random, Matrix, Helical interleaves, and BPSK, QPSK, QAM modulation methods. The simulation results reveal that Turbo code with random interleaver and BPSK modulation gives BER up to 10-5.
