Paper Abstract

Resolution limitations have a significant impact on accuracy of small target parameters estimated from imagery. This paper describes a model-based method for small target parameter estimation. The method requires an a priori model of the target, and under many conditions will provide better results than deconvolution relying on pixel data alone. A description of the algorithm will be given, along with examples illustrating performance in a variety of situations, including a demonstration of the ability to handle some degree of saturation in the imaging process.
