8,134,889: Systems and methods for augmenting gunshot location using echo processing features

  • Type: US
  • Application Number: 13/012,781
  • Publication Date: Mar 13 2012
  • Filing Date: Jan 24 2011
  • Abstract:

    Systems and methods are disclosed for processing weapon fire information such as gunfire. In one exemplary implementation, there is provided a method of processing gunshot information to determine source location information involving echo/reflection processing features. Moreover, the method may include processing gunshot information received from a source at a sensor having a reflecting surface at a given distance, processing direct arrival time and echo arrival time information, and determining source location information as a function of a virtual sensor calculated behind the surface.
