In this paper, a new technique called the Spectral Symmetry Iterative (SSI) frequency estimation algorithm is disclosed. This algorithm can be used for estimating the frequency and phase of a wide class of signals that are bandpass in nature. This technique can precisely determine the centre frequency of this class of signal in noiseless condition and can yield frequency error variance performance that is comparable to the Cramer Rao lower bound (CRLB) on frequency estimation error of a single complex exponential in the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN).
