Runaway Electrons (REs) are one of the main concerns in Tokamak plasma and can cause plasma instabilities. One key target of the future reactors is the REs diagnostic and control. For these reasons the analysis of their major properties is fundamental. An automatic platform for the RE pitch angle calculation which exploits imperfections on the visible images of the REs synchrotron radiation is presented.
