Under certain conditions, multiframe image sequences can be processed to produce images that achieve greater resolution through image registration and increased sampling. This technique, known as supersampling, takes advantage of the spatiotemporal data available in an undersampled imaging sequence. In this effort the image registration is replaced by application of a fast blind-deconvolution technique to remove the motion blur in the upsampled average of the image sequence. This method produces a supersampled image with significantly decreased computational requirements compared with common methods. The method and simulated test results are presented.
