Abstract : Part I reviews the following subjects: (i) the acoustical detection of signals from grenade releases above 85 km altitude; and (ii) the development of the theory of acoustical propagation through the atmosphere for the purpose of grenade burst position triangulation. Part II discusses infrasonic effects of atmospheric turbulence. Part III examines acoustic determination of grenade burst positions up to 30 km altitude.
