Abstract : The patent application relates to a method and apparatus for automatically locating an energy emitting target source, nominally in a two-dimension water medium, using three or more sensors whose outputs are normally connected by radio link to a general purpose digital computer. A level determinator detects the maximum relative signal strength of each of the sensor outputs and a simultaneous equation solver operates on the detected signal strength values by predetermined algorithms to produce the source coordinates which are displayed on a plan position indicator.
