A signal detection method that allows characterization of a modulated signal to be efficiently determined. The method comprises the steps of receiving a data signal, processing the data signal to determine its value squaring the value of the signal; filtering the squared signal value to remove DC content; evaluating the resulting signal to determine if a single sinusoidal value remains; and determining that the presence of a single sinusoidal value as the resulting signal from the squaring and filtering steps indicates that the received data signal is a phase-shift key signal or conversely that the absence of such after a given number of cycle of squaring and filtering indicates a different modulation technique is present in the signal.
