Blind and noncooperative identification of the transmission parameters of unknown communication signals has been employed both in military and civilian applications. Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) transmission systems emerging in the last decade pose new challenges to the signal identification systems, one of which is the identification of the Space-Time Block Code (STBC) used in the transmission. In this work, we present a novel STBC classification algorithm that exploits the joint wide sense cyclostationary characteristics of the coded transmit signals as discriminating features. Compared to existing algorithms, the proposed method can discriminate between a large number of different STBCs.
