Paper Abstract

Design and breadboarding of a technique to detect and locate a bright spot in a scanned image, employing video digital methods. Application is to detection and location of flares on the sun's disc, important primarily because of the danger to space travel from such flares. The conceptual design of the system is presented, and procedures employed in obtaining performance data are described. Experimental measurements and results are included.
