Abstract: In an ongoing effort to reduce the size, weight, and power of current acoustic localization systems, the Task Group (SET-189 RTG) on Battlefield Acoustic Sensing, Multimodal Sensing, and Networked Sensing for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Applications evaluated the feasibility of replacing the pressure sensor microphone with that of a particle velocity sensor. The particular sensor of interest in this research was that of the Acoustic Multi-Mission Sensor (AMMS) developed by Microflown AVISA. This work addresses sensor capabilities and limitations both in the open field and more complex operational environments as they relate to small-arms fire (SAF).
