Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DETECTING THE LOCATION, INTENSITY AND INITIATION TIME OF AN ENERGY PULSE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE SERVANT A DETECTER L'EMPLACEMENT, L'INTENSITE ET LE MOMENT DE DECLENCHEMENT D'UNE IMPULSION D'ENERGIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A plurality of energy couplers (12) receives signals from an energy pulse, each of the energy couplers (12) having a defined field of view, the field of views of at least some of the energy couplers being overlapping. A transducer (14) converts the signals received from the energy pulse to voltage or current output signals that are then amplified. A threshold circuit (18) triggers when the amplitude of a signal caused by the energy pulse exceeds a predetermined level, and signal processing instrumentation (24) then calculates the source location and/or the intensity and/or the initiation time of the energy pulse based on the timing of the output signals associated with individual energy couplers (12).
(FR)Une pluralité de coupleurs d'énergie (12) reçoit des signaux d'une impulsion d'énergie, chacun de ces coupleurs d'énergie (12) possédant un champ de visualisation déterminé, ces champs de visualisation se recouvrant pour au moins quelques uns des coupleurs d'énergie. Un transducteur (14) convertit les signaux reçus de l'impulsion d'énergie en signaux de sortie de tension ou de courant qui sont ensuite amplifiés. Un circuit de seuil (18) se déclenche quand l'amplitude d'un signal provoqué par l'impulsion d'énergie dépasse un niveau prédéterminé et un ensemble d'instruments de traitement de signaux (24) calcule ensuite l'emplacement de source et/ou l'intensité et/ou le moment de déclenchement de l'impulsion d'énergie en fonction de la synchronisation des signaux de sortie associés aux coupleurs d'énergie individuels (12).
