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 small arms, mortars and artillery guns on the same hardware platform. The main stages of this study have consisted of: 1. data acquisition of the acoustic signals of artillery guns and mortars, 2. modeling of the wave propagation in the atmosphere, 3. signal processing and evaluation of the localization performance for an individual array, and 4. an absolute X,Y localization based on a network of sensors will be studied at a later stage.
