Sonic direction finder

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4143351.

1. A direction finding system for determining the direction from which short sonic or ultrasonic pulses are incoming, comprising: a plurality of electroacoustic transducers forming a circular arrangement; electronic means for sequentially switching in and out pairs of diametrically opposed transducers; differential means having two inputs, respectively connected by said electronic means to said switched-in transducers, and an output for providing the differential output signal of each of said pairs; and means for deriving the phase of said output signal.
