Abstract

We are proposing a helmet-mounted sound localization system that incorporates two subsystems, one that restores and enhances the soldier's natural hearing, and another that makes decisions on the acoustic scene and displays the information to the soldier. The system will integrate auditory processing models from a variety of biological sources to aid in detection and analysis.
