      To utilize the resilience to multipath and rapidly varying Doppler shifts offered by a multicarrier (MC) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexed (OFDM) modulation waveform, and the high transmitter power efficiency offered by a single carrier (SC) Shaped Offset Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (SOQPSK) modulation waveform, we propose a novel Extensible Shaped Offset Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (E-SOQPSK) modulation waveform. E-SOQPSK is an OFDM structured single carrier modulation waveform, configurable to include OQPSK, SOQPSK, or mQAM. Preliminary laboratory results confirmed its low Peak-to-Average Power ratio (PAPR) and high spectrum efficiency. Preliminary simulations demonstrated multipath resilience of ESOQPSK waveform by utilizing OFDM structure based Frequency-Domain equalization at receiver.
