Abstract

Automatic modulation classification (AMC) technology, which utilizes to classify different kinds of signals using various expert features, typically the constellation map and the cyclic spectrum density graph, plays a significant role in spectrum monitoring and radio communication. However, due to their own disadvantages of constellation and cyclic spectrum density when recognizing some certain signals, it is necessary to combine them together in AMC. In this paper aiming at the commonly used features-based (FB) approach in practice, we propose a novel AMC model which jointly utilizes constellation map and cyclic spectrum density graph as the signal features. In order to provide a solution for the model, we propose a feature-based and supervised network in Single in Single out (SISO) system to identify seven kinds of signals, which is called Feature Fusion Convolutional Network (FFCN). By employing modified residual neural network (ResNet), the network can accomplish the prediction and classification according to the normalized and combined input from both two approaches. Simulation results are provided to show that FFCN can classify different types of signals with high probability as well as maintain the splendid efficiency compared to the benchmarks. Typically when signal to noise ratio (SNR) is low, the success rate of the proposed network is 2% higher at average, which proves that our network has better performance.
