This is a description of a model-based maximum likelihood estimation technique for determining the position and intensities of closely spaced objects (CSO's) present in the focal plane of a forward-looking infrared (FLIR) sensor. The object model considered here is approximate point sources; we present a methodology to superresolve two point sources separated closer than the Rayleigh resolution criteria. The Cramer-Rao theoretical lower bound is derived in closed form; the variance of the proposed estimator will be compared to this bound to verify its superresolving capability. Simulation results are presented for medium and high signal-to-noise (Gaussian noise) ratios and source separations.
