11 May 2007 Capabilities study of airborne acoustic sensor arrays
Author Affiliations +
Miltec Research & Technology along with the National Center for Physical Acoustics, Raspet Flight Research Laboratory, and Mississippi State University Aerospace Department have performed a detailed study of the benefits and issues associated with the implementation of an array of acoustic sensors on airborne platforms both moving and stationary. In order to facilitate this a platform has been developed for the testing of airborne acoustic arrays used in detection, tracking, and identification of objects of interest. The test bed has been selected such that it is optimized for this effort within reasonable limitations on complexity and costs. This approach allows for the determination of best case performance parameters for acoustic arrays on aerial platforms. Issues related to the design of the platform as well as measured results will be presented.
