The solar surveillance program at the Kanzelhoehe Solar Observatory: new facilities for high speed digital imaging and dynamic event tracking
The Kanzelhoehe Solar Observatory (Austria) has been devoted to multiwavelength synoptic observations of the sun for a long time in the frame of a long-term Solar Surveillance Program. Recently the observing capabilities were boosted by two new instruments for full-disk imaging: a digital H-alpha camera and a Magneto-Optical Filter (MOF) system. In this frame, we sketch the feasibility of a fully digital flare survey and a quasi-real time analysis system based on an artificial neural network, which might be relevant to the prediction of solar events affecting the solar-terrestrial environment.
