A new approach to time delay estimation, based on the inclusion of phase di®erence information between components of the received sig- nal is presented. A multi-component signal has been developed to solve the phase ambiguity problem. We present the concept and investigate its effectiveness through theoretical and practical examples, including underwater acoustic measurements, taking noisy environments into ac- count. We demonstrate resolutions better than a ¯ftieth of a wave- length, even in the presence of high levels (-5dB) of additive gaussian noise.
