—Cognitive Radio (CR) systems have been proposed to enable flexible use of the frequency spectrum in future generations of wireless networks. These are expected to detect spectrum bands that are not actively used by licensed (primary) users and provide unlicensed (secondary) users access to these bands. In this context it is important for the CR systems to(More)
—Automatic modulation classification (AMC) of unknown communications signals is employed in both commercial and military applications, such as cognitive radio, spectrum surveillance, and electronic warfare. Most of the AMC methods proposed in the literature are developed for systems with a single transmit antenna. In this paper, an AMC algorithm for(More)
In this paper, we consider a network-coded cooperative wireless network, where users mutually pair among themselves to realize network coding. We assume a multiuser environment, where users transmit to a common destination in the absence of dedicated relaying nodes. We address the important problem of the mutual pairing of users, which directly governs the(More)
__ The automatic recognition of the modulation format of a detected signal, the intermediate step between signal detection and demodulation, is a major task of an intelligent receiver, with various civilian and military applications. Obviously, with no knowledge of the transmitted data and many unknown parameters at the receiver, such as the signal power,(More)
—Spectrum sensing and awareness are challenging requirements in cognitive radio (CR). To adequately adapt to the changing radio environment, it is necessary for the CR to detect the presence and classify the on-the-air signals. The wireless industry has shown great interest in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technology. Hence,(More)
– In this paper we address the problem of identifying the modulation format of an incoming signal. We review many existing techniques for digital modulation recognition in a systematic way, which helps the reader to see the main features of each technique. The goal is to provide useful guidelines for choosing appropriate classification algorithms for(More)
