A novel image restoration method is proposed to resolve a problem that the traditional restoration method performs poorly when the kind of image degradation model from high- to low-resolution is unconfirmed. In this paper, the proposed method includes a conceptual frame of state space model (SSM) in order to achieve a general model for accurately estimating the high-resolution image sequence from its incomplete low-resolution observation sequence. Here the parameters of SSM are calculated by a statistic approach - maximum likelihood (ML) estimator. By using the most effective filter of SSM - Kalman filter to estimate, we find that the estimated image sequence is closer to the actual one than the bi-linear interpolation, so that the proposed method can be used to improve the restoration results.
