Radarbox Analyser !
« on: November 10, 2007, 05:08:00 PM »
Hi Guys, just got an email from David Triggs that wrote Acars Analyser http://www.cosmic.com.au/acarsanalyser/v3/

he said the following regarding his excellent Analyer program for using it in Radarbox:


maby we should try and team up with him to make us an excellent database log program!

As for Radar box, possibly, but the problem is that I am not going to
 buy
one. One of these jiggers is expensive enough. What I can do is find
 out
how it passes data out, either in DDE or more likely a socket
 connection
and write a program that captures data for a day or so. After that it
should be pretty easy to write a data collection program like AcarsDM.
 I
have the same  thing for SBS. The issue with SBS analyser is how fast
 it
can run. Here in Perth there is not a lot of traffic, will it work
successfully in the UK with 200+ contacts. There are many pproblems to
overcome, not the least is the database. I suspect I will move to SQL
Server Express to handle the volume.

sorry I forgot to add..

Hi Marc,

Well that's pretty simple, if you get one let me know and you can be a guinea pig for the software.

David, hope this helps regarding the Airnav radarbox data:
 
 Can I have access to the data I receive?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The data received by RadarBox is available over port 7879 to use for external applications however the data is delayed by 5 minutes for security reasons (NB, the data you view on the software is not delayed).

The feed works the following way:

1- Flight messages are received in real-time from the decoder.

2- Selected/relevant messages are added to a queue with a an attached time stamp. Not all messages are added because many of them them are irrelevant (imagine you have a flight being tracked with all the information available: aircraft type, lat/long, altitude - if a message containing only the Mode-s hex code of the aircraft is received it is not added to the queue as it adds no info to what the software already has all the information regarding that flight). If for example a change in altitude or V/S is received the message will, of course, be added to the queue.

3- There is a timer permanently checking the queue for messages older than 4 minutes 59 seconds. If there are messages in this condition, they are deleted from the queue and added to the output port.

We used XML for easy compatibility with all possible programs (XML is the world reference in data exchange).

Format as below:

<MODESMESSAGE>
   <DATETIME>20070622141943</DATETIME>
   <MODES>400F2B</MODES>
   <CALLSIGN>BAW134</CALLSIGN>
   <ALTITUDE>120300</ALTITUDE>
   <GROUNDSPEED>451</GROUNDSPEED>
   <TRACK>234</TRACK>
   <VRATE>0</VRATE>
   <AIRSPEED></AIRSPEED>
   <LATITUDE>-14.1102</LATITUDE>
   <LONGITUDE>-31.5789</LONGITUDE>
</MODESMESSAGE>

There has been no email to support. Just searched his email and nothing came up unless he contacted us under a different address.
