Quick Detection System or qds is a software package that has been developed for detecting point sources in the Planck satellite data as soon as the data become available, a few days after transmission to the Earth. Point sources are detected by filtering the data with a filter defined by the Mexican hat wavelet. An alert is generated on those detections that are found to be interesting, such as prominent flaring, according to the criteria specified to the software. The goal is to detect spectral or flux variability in active galactic nuclei so that instant multifrequency follow-up observations with other instruments could be arranged to study the interesting behaviour.
