Carrier tracking loop is a basic method of frequency tracking in CEI (connected element interferometry), but the tracking error is very large or even worse at high dynamic. To solve this problem, a frequency tracking method assisted by open loop frequency estimation is proposed in this paper. First, an open-loop frequency estimation algorithm is used to estimate the frequency of signals at different moments, then, the least squares fitting method is used to estimate the corresponding dynamic parameters of different orders. Next, a local signal is generated to compensate the received signal. After eliminating most of the dynamic characteristics, the signal is fed into PLL (Frequency locked loop) and high-precision frequency tracking results can be obtained. Simulation results show that, in the condition of low SNR, the new method has higher accuracy than the method assisted by FLL (Frequency locked loop), and the processing time is shorter. When there is a two order Doppler frequency change, the open-loop assisted method can overcome the steady phase error of the PLL, and is of great significance in the applications of connected elements interferometry.
