In this paper, a hybrid Discrete Fractional Cosine Transform (DFrCT) with Tikhonov regularization based Turbo Minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalization (DFrCT-Turbo) is presented to suppress inter-carrier interference (ICI) over underwater acoustic channels (UWA). The scheme is based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) scenario. In addition, an optimal order selecting method for DFrCT is developed by maximizing carrier to interference ratio (CIR) to UWA channel character. Simulation results show that BER improvement of up to 5dBs over traditional orthogonal based methods with moderate complexity.
