I'm guessing here, but does it shift the inaudible bat sonic emissions
down into human hearing range?  Maybe a parabolic dish with headphones?
Or does it use radio wave reflections to track the target?  Possibly,
it detects their infrared signature and plots it on a miniature cathode
ray tube in an eye-piece?  Or maybe resonance in the bat wings it found 
through laser refraction?

In any case, I hope you blow those little #@%$%#$s out of the sky!
