Mlat Open Source Agorithms
« on: August 19, 2022, 03:57:13 PM »
Hi. I am working on a school project and wanted to ask the group if you were aware of any mlat algorithms that are open source that I could use with the XRange2 stations and the ModeS Beast output.

Any help with this from fellow avgeeks is greatly appreciated

Thank you !!

I doubt you will find anything out there.  MLAT software is on the tracker websites servers and you will not find it in the wild

Have you guys even googled mlat server? ...

airnav is using that by the way, not sure if they are finally putting a URL in the client log where the server code is, because that is what the license requires.

I don't think the xrange line of receivers is user accessible but i believe it's just an rtl-sdr compatible receiver.
So .... use your own Raspbian on an extra sd-card: https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wiki/wiki/Raspbian-Lite:-ADS-B-receiver

They were always putting the URL of the mlat-server code in user logs/status.

From start until recently, they were using code from mutability and specified their URL
https://github.com/mutability/mlat-server

Recently they have switched to code from adsbexchange and started specifying their URL.
https://github.com/adsbexchange/mlat-server

Please see attached screenshot.
