Abstract:

Using a single three-axis seismometer it is possible to provide bearing estimates to military targets. This has traditionally been done with large interconnected arrays of seismic or acoustic sensors. This technique lays the groundwork for cheap low power sensor nodes to provide bearing estimates to targets. Such sensor nodes become ideal cueing devices for other collocated or remote sensors in a sensor network.
