The analysis of existing methods and means of application of acoustic signals in different branches of industry. Prospects for further development of theory and methods for improving information systems and devices determination of the distance to the source of acoustic signals based on their gradient and correlation processing have been shown. The proposed method of gradient-processing acoustic signal and information technology solving the problem of determining the distance to the source of acoustic signals. Spatial geometry for different location of sources and receivers of acoustic signals was systemized. Acoustic signals dissemination charts and fading of their intensity in the propagation medium were estimated. Principles to improve performance were developed, evaluated the advantages and functional limitations of the proposed method.
