System requirements and installation


  • PC with more processor kernels (8 kernels recommended)*
  • MS Windows XP or later (Linux with wine emulator)
  • Display with minimum resolution 1024 × 768 pixels (the more the better)
  • Several GB of free space on HD (1 image has approx. 32 MB)
  • All input data must be stored on HD. Do not process images on read-only media (CD, DVD, Blue Ray)
  • * NAFE alogorithm is very time consuming. That is why the NAFE image analyzer uses parallel processing. The processing time on Intel Core i7-3820 working on 3.6 GHz (8 processor kernels) is about 5.5 min for the whole SDO AIA image and about 18 sec for 1024 × 768 crop. If you use computer with only one processor the processing will be 8 times slower.

NAFE Image Analyzer does not need any installation. Simply follow these steps:
  • Make a new folder
  • Unpack file to this folder
  • Run Nafe.exe
  • You may create a launcher on the Windows desktop if you want.
