Abstract
One component of wireless communications of increasing necessity in both civilian and military applications is the process of automatic modulation classification. Modulation of a

detected signal of unknown origin requiring interpretation must first be determined before

the signal can be demodulated. This thesis presents a novel architecture for a modulation

classifier that determines the most likely modulation using Grey Relational Analysis with the

extraction and combination of multiple signal features. An evaluation of data preprocessing

methods is conducted and performance of the classifier is investigated with the addition of

each new signal feature used for classification.
