dump1090 is a ADS-B, Mode S, and Mode 3A/3C demodulator and decoder that will receive and decode aircraft transponder messages received via a directly connected software defined radio, or from data provided over a network connection.
After installation, allow it to access the SDR dongle by issuing the following command:
sudo snap connect dump1090-carroarmato0:raw-usb
How to use:
- dump1090-carroarmato0.dump1090 - Start capturing and decoding messages
- dump1090-carroarmato0.webserver - Start a webserver to view the aircrafts on a map in your browser
dump1090 is automatically configured to write the json files on disk, and the webserver automatically set to read them from the correct location.
