RevFlight tracker

With a simple RTL-SDR it's possible to receive flight "beacons" which a commercial aircraft emits. There is software which in combination with an DVB-t receiver can show the planes flying in the area.

Setup

  • Connect your DVB-T receiver
  • git clone git@github.com:MalcolmRobb/dump1090.git
  • Run `make` (note that you need to have rtl-sdr installed)

Note: On Arch use the dump1090-git package from the AUR

Yet another fork of dump1090 has range support and can identify the origin of the aircraft.

Running

  • Run ./dump1090 --interactive --net
  • Open http://localhost:8080/ in your browser to see an interactive google map

Monitor

The plan is to create a sonar like display of the current airplanes. dump1090 kan dump the raw msg (? hex encoded). There is a Python library which might make it easier to decode the messages from dump1090
