Acoustic Source Localization (ASL) is a technique used to track and locate the exact location of a sound source using an array of microphones. This paper examines the feasibility of applying this technique in Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) scenario. The MAVs find applications in both military and civilian domains. Use of a vision sensor is one of the popular solutions and the information gathered from vision is used in tracking and navigation applications. Alternatively, acoustic sensors can be a good candidate as sound waves travel in all directions and can be detected at long distances from the sound source, and beyond line of sight. During night time or in fog, dust, smoke, dense forests or otherwise cluttered environments, acoustic signals are far more reliable than visual cues [1].
