A direct-sequence spread-spectrum communications method of de-spreading and decoding received data transmitted through an acoustic channel. A first code match filter is applied to receive data to output a first code impulse response comprising a channel impulse response modulated by a pseudo-random number bit. A second code match filter is applied to the received data to output a second code impulse response comprising the channel impulse response modulated by a message symbol bit. The first code impulse response is correlated with the second code impulse response to output the message symbol bit modulated by the pseudo-random number bit. The pseudo-random number bit is eliminated to identify the message symbol bit, thereby decoding the message symbol bit from the received data.
