      It seems reasonable to assume that one can determine the location of
      a nuclear burst using such a set of sensors by measuring the
      differences in arrival time between the gamma sensor and the three
      blast wave sensors. Certainly makes more sense than expecting the
      State and local EOCs to relay NUDET information to FEMA! :-(
