The research problem of the parameter estimation of multiple superimposed damped complex exponentials in noise is of significant importance in many engineering and science applications. In this paper, we propose a simple yet accurate estimator to address the problem. By combining an efficient windowed frequency and damping estimator for a single component with an iterative leakage subtraction scheme, the novel method consecutively and iteratively estimates one component at a time by gradually reducing the leakage introduced by other components presented. Simulation results are presented to verify that the proposed algorithm is capable of outperforming state-of-art time and frequency domain algorithms.
