A method to detect and accurately measure the arrival time of wave packets in ultrasonic signals using a nonlinear decomposition technique is presented. We specifically address the problem of extracting events that are not well separated in the time, space and frequency domains. Analysis of complex ultrasonic signals, even those composed of poorly separated echoes, provided exceptional estimates of the desired time of arrival, from the media under investigation.
