The problem of the super-resolution time delay estimation of the real stationary signals is addressed in this paper. The time delay estimation is first converted into a frequency estimation problem. Then a MUSIC-type algorithm to estimate the subsequent frequency from the single-experiment data is proposed, which not only avoids the mathematical model mismatching but also utilizes the advantages of the subspace-based methods. The mean square errors (MSEs) of the time delay estimate of the MUSIC-type method for varying signal-to-noise (SNR) and separation of two received signal components are shown to illustrate that they approximately coincide with the corresponding Cramer-Rao bound (CRB). Finally, the comparison between the MUSIC-type method and the other conventional methods is presented to show the advantages of the proposed method in this paper.
