Automatic modulation type identification is needed in many applications. Most of modulation type identification methods can only recognize a few kinds of signals. They usually require high levels of signal to noise ratio (SNR) to achieve an acceptable performance. This paper proposes a new intelligent digital modulation type identifier. This identifier uses a multilayer perceptron neural network with resilient back propagation learning algorithm as the classifier and higher order moments and

Genetic algorithm is utilized to finding the numbers of hidden layer nodes and selection of input features. The experiment results show that IDMTI is able to discriminate the different kinds of digital modulations with high accuracy even at very low SNR values.
