Systems and methods for classifying a modulation scheme of a wireless signal are described. In some embodiments, a system receives a wireless signal modulated based on a modulation scheme having a constant modulus. The system can generate a resampled signal from the wireless signal based on features extracted from the wireless signal and perform blind equalization on the resampled signal based on a constant modulus criterion to generate an equalized signal. Then, the system can cause a modulation classifier to classify the received wireless signal to a modulation scheme from a plurality of predetermined modulation schemes based on the equalized signal. By preconditioning the wireless signal to reduce feature variability imparted by a propagation channel onto the wireless signal, the system can increase the classification accuracy of the modulation classifier.
