Abstract
The concept of partially overlapping multiple beams, produced by focal plane arrays in large antennas, has been used successfully at mm-waves to detect instantaneously spatial positions of rapid spikes produced by solar flares. The technique has been used at mm-waves and was recently applied to the Solar Submillimeter-wave Telescope, which operates at 212 and 405 GHz. We present the basic description of the concept and the results obtained. New applications are being considered for shorter submm-IR wavelengths, with the use of focal plane arrays of bolometers, which spatial angular accuracy will strongly depend on the knowledge of the beamshapes of the individual beams produced.
