Abstract:

A swept freqency interferometer system such as the one in operation at Sagamore Hill observatory, described in AFGL Tech report 76-0194 1976, contains in its output data, precise information which can determine, in a plane resolution, the position of a radio source on the solar disk within 1.3 min arc. This information is the frequency separation between the interference fringes within the spectrum observed. A system which could, automatically, convert this information to degrees and minutes of arc is described.
