Signal identification techniques developed for the purpose of blind and noncooperative identification of the transmission parameters of unknown communication signals have been employed both in military and civilian applications. Blind identification of the Space-Time Block Codes (STBC) used in a multiantenna transmisson can be regarded as one of the new and most significant challenges presented to the signal identification systems by the Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) transmission systems. In this work, we present novel STBC classification algorithms that exploit the cyclostationary characteristics of the coded transmit signals as discriminating features.
