TDOA(time delay of arrival) position estimate from acoustic measurement of artillery shell impact is studied in order to develop a targeting evaluation system. Impact position is calculated from the intersections of hyperbolic estimates based on the least square Taylor series method. The mathematical process of Taylor series estimation is known to be robust. However, the concern lays with the accuracy because it is sensitive to the bias caused by the randomness of measurement situation. The measurement error typically occurs from the distortion of waveform, change of travelling path, and sensor position error. For outdoor measurement, a consideration should be made on the atmospheric condition such as temperature and wind which can possibly change the trajectories of rays of sound. It produces wrong propagation time events accordingly. Ray tracing and optimization techniques are introduced in this study to minimize the bias induced by the ray of sound. The numerical simulation shows that the atmospheric correction improves the estimation accuracy.
