This paper studies the feasibility of enhancing the spatial resolution of multilook Multispectral Thermal Imager (MTI) imagery using an iterative resolution enhancement algorithm known as Projection Onto Convex Sets (POCS). A multiangle satellite image modeling tool is implemented, and simulated multilook MTI imagery is formed to test the resolution enhancement algorithm. Experiments are done to determine the optimal configuration and number of multiangle low-resolution images needed for a quantitative improvement in the spatial resolution of the high-resolution estimate. The issues of atmospheric path radiance and directional reflectance variations are explored to determine their effect on the resolution enhancement performance.
