Differences in arrival times of acoustic waves at multiple sensors permit the computation of source location. The computation depends upon delay estimation between sensor pairs. In severe acoustic environments, the estimates are degraded by reverberation and interfering noise, and some estimates are poor, constituting outlier. This report describes a computational method for outlier elimination to improve the accuracy of source location.
