In this paper, a spatial domain based super-resolution mosaicing system and its evaluation results are presented. This algorithm incorporates two main algorithms, an image mosaicing algorithm and a super-resolution-reconstruction algorithm. Huber-based prior information is used to address the ill-posed nature of the super resolution problem. To test the efficiency of the proposed algorithm, four performance metrics are used: mean square error, peak signal-to-noise ratio, singular value decomposition based measure, and cumulative probability of blur detection. Testing is performed using datasets generated from both a high altitude balloon and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Results show that the proposed algorithm is highly efficient in real-time applications, such as remote sensing on a small satellite (i.e., CubeSat.) Furthermore, the performance metrics are proven to be accurate in quantitative evaluation.
