ADS-B Reception, Decoding & Sharing with Docker
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked.
This ADS-B data can be received by nerds enthusiasts using Software Defined Radio (SDR), and used for fun and profit. For example:
This guide will walk you through the process to deploy and configure Docker containers to allow reception and decoding of ADS-B data, as well as submission to various flight tracking services, both open and commercial, and the visualisation of this data.
