A ballistic model-based method, which builds upon previous work by Lo and Ferguson [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. , 2997–3017 (2012)], is described for ranging small arms fire using a single acoustic sensor node collocated with the target, without knowledge of the muzzle speed and ballistic constant of the bullet except that they belong to a known two-dimensional parameter space. The method requires measurements of the differential time of arrival and differential angle of arrival of the muzzle blast and ballistic shock wave at the sensor node. Its performance is evaluated using both simulated and real data.
