Blind Multi-Spectral Image Pan-Sharpening


We address the problem of sharpening low spatial-resolution multi-spectral (MS) images with their associated misaligned high spatial-resolution panchromatic (PAN) image, based on priors on the spatial blur kernel and on the cross-channel relationship. In particular, we formulate the blind pan-sharpening problem within a multi-convex optimization framework using total generalized variation for the blur kernel and local Laplacian prior for the crosschannel relationship. The problem is solved by the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM), which alternately updates the blur kernel and sharpens intermediate MS images. Numerical experiments demonstrate that our approach is more robust to large misalignment errors and yields better super resolved MS images compared to state-of-the-art optimization-based and deep-learning-based algorithms.
