This paper presents a solution to the problem of enhancing the spatial resolution of multispectral images with high-resolution panchromatic observations. The proposed method exploits the undecimated discrete wavelet transform, which is an octave bandpass representation achieved from a conventional discrete wavelet transform by omitting all decimators and up-sampling the wavelet filter bank, and the vector multiscale Kalman filter, which is used to model the injection process of wavelet details. Kalman modelization is exploited by spatial detail analysis at coarser scales in which multispectral and panchromatic representations are known. Results are presented and discussed on very-high resolution images acquired by Quickbird satellite systems. Fusion simulations on spatially degraded data and fusion tests at the full scale reveal that an accurate and reliable PAN-sharpening is achieved by the proposed method.
