We address the problem of determining the source location of an electromagnetic signal from the signal received by one or more moving receivers. We base our process on cross-spectral methods that were developed in the early 1980’s for analysis and demodulation/despreading of communication and spread spectrum signals and were later applied to speech processing and speech enhancement. In this article, we expand the concept of robust polynomial tracking, which we demonstrate may be used to solve for the emitter location in closed form. This is accomplished by generating and solving a system of equations representing curves, each of which passes through the emitter location.
