Modulation Recognition in Multipath Fading Channels Using Cyclic Spectral Analysis

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors propose a novel signal classification method using cyclic spectral analysis and neural networks for multipath fading channels. The proposed system provides excellent classification performance in realistic multipath fading channels at low SNR, while assuming no a priori knowledge of the signal statistics, including carrier frequency, phase offset, or symbol rate. Due to its insensitivity to these statistics and its robustness to multipath fading channels, the Spectral Coherence Function (SOF) is employed in the proposed system to produce a highly reliable classifier.
