We are presenting a new method for super resolution tracking of frequency modulated sinusoids in white noise. The method is specifically designed to handle the rapid transient problem, i.e. the problem of tracking a continuous, rapidly changing instantaneous frequency contour. The proposed method employs two components: 1) an adaptive generalized scale transform 1,2 which applies a localized change of time-frequency coordinates within the given signal, and 2) an estimation of signal parameters by rotational invariance techniques3 (ESPRIT). With experiments we have shown that the proposed method provides a significantly higher estimation accuracy than conventional methods.3 With an optimal choice of transform parameters the estimation error can be reduced dramatically. Error reductions of over 40% have been observed.
