To solve the problem of reconnaissance and processing of broadband satellite communication signals, a kind of satellite communication signals BPSK/QPSK modulation pattern recognition method was put forward in this paper. This method deals with the satellite descending signal with BPSK/QPSK modulation in the under-sampling condition. Because the corrected spectrum of BPSK signal contains obvious crest, while QPSK signal does not contain this feature. The difference of the waveform characteristics is used to complete modulation pattern recognition. The simulation results show that this method can identify BPSK/QPSK modulation signals when SNR is greater than 1 dB. When the sampling points are reduced, the satellite communication signal under-sampling modulation pattern recognition method can still maintain good recognition performance.
