Abstract:

Information on the position of a source of radiation is often obtained from bearing observations made from two or more known locations. Some criticisms of existing procedures are enumerated and a new approach proposed. This approach allows for the incorporation of knowledge existing before the observations are made and provides simple computational procedures for estimating the source position and for ascertaining the new state of knowledge from the data furnished by the observations.
