Abstract : The applied research described has been basically directed toward developing improved meteorological techniques for use with tactical sound ranging systems. In the course of these studies it became apparent that significant error was being injected into the locations found using the standard GR-8 Sound Ranging System by the solution technique which transforms the relative times of arrival of sound at six microphones into an estimate of spatial location. A number of candidate techniques were evaluated. (Author)
