Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETECTING A LAUNCH POSITION OF A PROJECTILE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE DÉTECTION D'UNE POSITION DE LANCEMENT DE PROJECTILE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus for detecting the launch position of a projectile is described. The apparatus includes at least one wideband microphone array positioned so as to be responsive to acoustic emissions generated by the launch and flight of a projectile. The apparatus includes signal processing means, for processing the signals generated by the microphone array or arrays, the output of which provides an estimate of launch position and kinematic information relating to the projectile.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un procédé et sur un appareil de détection de la position de lancement d'un projectile. L'appareil comprend au moins un réseau de microphones à large bande, positionné de façon à être sensible à des émissions acoustiques générées par le lancement et le vol d'un projectile. L'appareil comprend des moyens de traitement de signaux pour traiter les signaux générés par le ou les réseaux de microphones dont la sortie fournit une estimation de la position de lancement et des informations cinématiques concernant le projectile.
