Solar Radio Burst Locator (SRBL) (U)

Overview (U):

(U) There are currently three upgrades to the Solar Electro-Optical Network (SEON) underway: the Solar Radio Burst Locator (SRBL), which will provide the location of solar radio bursts; an enhanced Swept Frequency Interferometric Radiometer (SFIR), which, when combined with SRBL, will replace the Radio Solar Telescope Network (RSTN) equipment; and the Improved Solar Observing Optical Network (ISOON), which will replace the current SOON.

Description (U):

(U) This new ground-based system is projected to be operational in 1999. SRBL radio mappings of active regions on the solar disk will augment the present optical observations of these phenomena which are limited by clouds and other atmospheric obscurants. Precise location of active regions on the solar disk is crucial to accurate forecasting of solar flare impacts on the near earth environment.
