Abstract : A system for detecting and identifying acoustic sound sources using a plurality of identical data acquisition modules spaced at preselected intervals along a line array. Two small diameter coaxial cables provide inter-modular connections for power, timing control and sequential data transmission to a remote receiver. A control clock waveform leading edge simultaneously triggers sampling and holding of sensor data at each module of the array while the waveform trailing edge is delayed for a preselected interval at each module to provide sequential data output.
