A general method is described to improve the operational resolution of an Electro-Optic (EO) imaging sensor using multiple frames of an image sequence. This method only assumes the constituent video has some ambient motion between the sensor and stationary background, and the optical image is electronically captured and digitally recorded by a staring focal plane detector array. Compared to alternative techniques that may require externally controlled or measured dither motion, this approach offers significantly enhanced operational resolution with substantially relaxed constraints on sensor stabilization, optics, and exposure time.
