We consider least squares (LS) approaches for locating a radiating source from range measurements (which we call R-LS) or from range-difference measurements (RD-LS) collected using an array of passive sensors. We also consider LS approaches based on squared range observations (SR-LS) and based on squared range-difference measurements (SRD-LS). Despite the fact that the resulting optimization problems are nonconvex, we provide exact solution procedures for efficiently computing the SR-LS and SRD-LS estimates. Numerical simulations suggest that the exact SR-LS and SRD-LS estimates outperform existing approximations of the SR-LS and SRD-LS solutions as well as approximations of the R-LS and RD-LS solutions which are based on a semidefinite relaxation.
