Abstract. The location of objects based on the analysis of acoustic signals is widely used in various civil and military systems. Applications that allow the users to determine the location of the sound source are used, for example, in conference rooms for automatic speaker location, enabling unattended camera control, detecting and tracking the movement of objects in area surveillance systems, etc. The paper presents a system for determining the azimuth of a moving motor vehicle developed at the Military Institute of Engineer Technology in cooperation with the Wroclaw University of Technology. The system is designed for the detection, identification and location of armored vehicles and trucks. The use of acoustic signal analysis methods to locate objects allowed for the construction of passive systems that are difficult to detect. This property is particularly important in area surveillance systems and military equipment designs.
