ADS-B while A/C or vehicle on the ground?
« on: September 24, 2007, 02:58:29 PM »
Has anyone ever tried it? Or is RB able to do it? ADS-B is not only used by aircraft but also by vehicles at some airports to track and identify vehicles on the airport surface. What does RB do if it receives this types of signals? Does it simply filter it out?

I'm not aware of ADS-B being used by any vehicles - what make you say that ?

Vehicles at EHAM are equipped with ADS-B for position tracking.  These vehicles can be received and displayed by SBS-1/Basestation.

Thanks for the link - I stand corrected.

Interestingly they sometimes forget to switch off ADS-B during lunch break and you can see them driving to the next McDonalds via the highway...

Thanks.

RadarBox would be able to track them as well, we see no reason why it would not. Check the screenshot forum for ground targets being tracked.
