In low SNR condition, it is difficult to identify the radio transient characteristics of the signals. To solve this problem, a new recognition algorithm based on multifractal dimension characteristics is proposed. In fractal theory, multifractal dimension is the most sophisticated characterize that can describe the similar characteristics of the signals. Therefore, multifractal dimension is used in this paper to extract the subtle features of different impulse noise signals, in order to achieve the purpose of the classification and identification of the radiation source.
