Recently, There are increasing number of studies that apply multi-carrier method, a land mobile communication method, to underwater channel environment in order to enhance the performance of underwater communication. Therefore, in this paper, in order to design a new system with improved communication performance compared to the multi-carrier method in underwater communication, we present that the RS(Resource Spreading) FMT-OFDM system has a diversity and repetition effect from resource spreading. Moreover, we verify the performance of RS FMT-OFDM system and existing FMT-OFDM system through simulations after modeling communication channels and setting the system parameter based on the data measured from the real sea. Our result indicate that, compared to the existing FMT-OFDM system, there has been an improvement in communication performance by 12dB based on BER we also discovered that communication performance improves as the resource spreading rate increases.
