NOVELTY – The method involves sensing large angular dimension radiation emanating from larger font or field through intermediary of a concentrator and a radiation sensor device. The concentrated radiation is passed in a focal plane of a collecting system, where gain of the collecting system is increased for detection of small emission sources. Entire area of a sensing element is utilized to form an image extended object. USE – Method for detecting small radiation sources in extensive fields. Uses include but are not limited to detect volcanic eruptions, explosions, gunfire or detonations and small explosive dimensions of solar disk. ADVANTAGE – The method enables obtaining images, and allows simultaneous detection of radiation from extended sources with better sensitivity. DETAILED DESCRIPTION – An INDEPENDENT CLAIM is also included for a system for detecting small radiation sources in extensive fields. DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) – The drawing shows a schematic view illustrating a method for detecting small radiation sources in extensive field.
