Abstract

In recent years, the increasing popularity of consumer-grade drones has not been matched by the development of the techniques necessary to regulate their use. If misused, these drones can pose a security threat or become a hazard to other aerial vehicles. Because of their small size, locating and tracking them is a challenge, and traditional aerial detection methods are inefective. However, they are very noisy when in ight. This thesis proposes using the sound emitted by a drone to track and locate it, through what is known as acoustic source localization. The underlying problem, positioning sound sources in space, will be explored from a mathematical perspective. Two solutions will be proposed, one of which has been implemented into a prototype. The design, construction and testing of this prototype will also be presented.
