Monitoring Aviation from a different point of view
ADS-B (Automatic dependent surveillance — broadcast) is the protocol used by airplanes to give their position beacons. This includes there altitude, location, heading, and Squawk Code.
Monitoring ADS-B Traffic
Eric Carlson from FlightAware.com joins us on the podcast to talk about ADS-B monitoring using a PiAware setup. This setup is very quick and easy, and is super affordable.
Eric and I discuss the benefits of owning your own ADS-B receiving setup, the steps required to build your own ground station, and the perks of sending your data to FlightAware.com.
Once you have setup your home station, you begin sending your data to FlightAware.com and in turn, they upgrade your account to “Enterprise” status.
