This letter investigates the performance of underwater optical wireless communication systems (UOWC) employing optical pre-amplification as well as multiple receivers to exploit the advantages of spatial diversity. Numerical results are further provided to evaluate the error performance of pre-amplified single-input multiple-output (SIMO) UOWC systems when onoff keying (OOK) modulation is utilized. Our results reveal that the proposed system configuration can indeed offer significant system performance enhancements in terms of the attainable bit error rate.
