Beast black box utility for RPi, OPi and other


Hello everyone. I made some useful tool to decode binary BEAST messages from the file.

BEAST black box utility is command line tool that useful to decode ModeS and ModeA/C information stored in binary BEAST format in the file. Utility based on the source code of dump1090 and inherits all benefits of this tool. In other words, it is dump1090 code that reads binary BEAST data from the file instead of network or RTL-dongle as it does original dump1090.

More information and source code are available on GitHib:

Hope you’ll appeciate it. Questions and suggestions are welcome.
