Analysis of spectral and video data for anomalous events occurring in the exhaust plume of the Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) has shown that the improved time resolution of video tape increases the detection rate of anomalies in the visual region. Preliminary developments and applications of image processing techniques are used to extract information from video data of the SSME exhaust plume. Images have been enhanced to show the exhaust plume shock structure and for the isolation of an anomalous event.
