Paper Abstract

The detection and localization of artillery guns on the battlefield is envisaged by means of acoustic aerial waves including sonic and infrasonic waves. The main objective of this work is to examine the different frequency ranges usable for the detection of an artillery gun on the battlefield and in particular to investigate the potential interest of the infrasound range. The main stages of this study have consisted of: - data acquisition of acoustic (including the infrasound range) signals of artillery guns and mortars, - modeling of the wave propagation in the atmosphere, - signal processing and evaluation of the performance of a system of networked sensors.
