The current classification of RF signals from the drone is achieved by leveraging raw signal information of a specific band. The modulation scheme that was found prevailing in commercial drones is Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). OFDM can demodulated to provide information about a raw drone signal. This extracted data is coupled with a machine learning algorithm that is used to classify the signal. Testing of this research is needed to identify better equipment and an optimized test scenario that captures quality data that can be used to train a machine learning algorithm.
