Paper Abstract

Estimation of the angular position of a target feature is considered with a special emphasis on a case where a much stronger signature component may "mask" the presence of the feature. Judiciously applied amplitude apodization is shown to be an effective technique for tracking a weak image signal in the presence of a much stronger but undesired signal component. A method is suggested for constructing position estimation algorithms employing apodization techniques.
