PlanePlotter receives and decodes live digital position reports from aircraft and plots them on a chart.

Using PlanePlotter, you can see a radar-like display of all those aircraft around you that are transmitting the appropriate digital messages including ACARS, ADS-B and HFDL.

PlanePlotter – Features
The animated screen grab from PlanePlotter (left) was kindly provided by John Locker.

Message display
PlanePlotter shows a table display of messages received and decoded from live aircraft transmissions.

Data saving
PlanePlotter archives all the digital data that it receives and decodes to a log file.

Chart display
PlanePlotter plots aircraft positions, altitudes and s decoded from the message traffic that it receives. These include embedded position reports, AMDAR reports and ADS reports contained in ACARS messages, ADS-B position reports received by the Kinetic SBS1 or AirNav System RadarBox Mode-S receivers, and position reports on HF using Charles Brain’s PC-HFDL software. The plot can be superimposed on a suitable aeronatical chart that you have prepared, or PlanePlotter can satellite imagery and plot the aircraft symbols on that. Where altitude information is available (eg Mode-S messages), you can select the data by altitude band to distinguish low level and high level traffic.

Google Earth server
If you are receiving Mode-S ADS-B position reports, PlanePlotter can interface to Google Earth to display aircraft positions over the Google Earth base map. It can even give you a dynamic real- view from the flight deck of an aircraft that you designate.

Direction finding
PlanePlotter can detee and display the direction of any transmission using a simple passive antenna switch. This allows aircraft to be located even if they are not equipped with ACARS or Mode-S/ADS-B.
