Data format


#1

We are considering installing a FlightFeeder ADS-B receiver. The Flight Aware web site says that “Users can connect to their FlightFeeder over their LAN to receive all data.”. Can anyone help with providing a sample of the format of the raw data from the FlightFeeder?


#2

PiAware and FlightFeeder both have the same ports open for outputting data. If you make your program work with PiAware it will also work with a FlightFeeder.

Port 30002 is AVR formatted and look like the following:

*006181B095FF8E;
*59A695B861373C;
*006181B095FF8E;
*006601B04DC26D;
*5DA17DE2275047;
*0061819F6B9E76;
*59A695B861373C;
*5FA8163DC8AF03;

Port 30003 is SBS formatted and looks like the following:

Port 30005 is Beast formatted output. It is binary data so it can’t be displayed easily.
