There is a need, for example in electronic surveillance, to determine the modulation type of an incoming signal. The use of the wavelet transform for modulation identification of digital signals is described. The wavelet transform can effectively extract the transient characteristics in a digital communication signal, yielding distinct patterns for simple identification. Three identifiers for classifying PSK and FSK, M-ary PSK and M-ary FSK are considered. Statistics for hypothesis testing are derived. When the carrier-to-noise ratio is low, the symbol period and synchronisation time are needed to improve identification accuracy. A method for estimating them from the wavelet transform coefficients is included. The performance of the identifier is investigated through simulations
