The ADS-B Receiver Project Portal
Version 3 portal repository to be made public shortly!
Version 3 is currently in development and soon an alpha quality version of the portal which can be ran side by side with the current portal
on v2.x devices will be made available. The repository containing the portal will soon be open to those wanting to help test and/or develop
the portal or for those simply wanting to experience whats coming in version 3 before it is released. However, do not expect it to contain
every features right away.
The ADS-B Receiver Project scripts offer the option to install a web based portal developed to work together with the software you decide to install. Portal features in Version 2 include the following...
- A uniform website layout which is easy to navigate.
- Both system and RTL-SDR historical performance graphs.
- Notifications sent to the browser when specified flight numbers are seen.
- Option to retain and view historical flight data.
Supported Operating Systems
The installation scripts are being developed and tested on the following operating systems.
However, they should work on most all recent Debian based Linux distributions as well.
DebianDebian 8 ("Jessie") and Debian 9 ("Stretch").
UbuntuUbuntu 16.04 LTS ("Xenial Xerus"), Ubuntu 18.04 LTS ("Bionic Beaver") and Ubuntu 18.10 ("Cosmic Cuttlefish").
A receiver can be run on a multitude of different hardware platforms. However, the CPU architecture needs to be either i386, x86-64, or ARM compatable. Some feature may not be available on some platforms, in particular features such as the system performance graphs.
The following hardware is officially being supported at this time.*
Raspberry PiDepending on how many features are added the software should work on most any model Raspberry Pi.
However, it is highly recommended a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B or newer be used.
Most PC SystemsAny PC capable of running one of the above mentioned operating systems.
* It would be impossible at this time to officially support all single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi with the multitude of single-board computer variants currently available on the market. As additional single-board computers becomes more popular and mainstream the option to support them officially will be addressed. Until then support can be found for some of the more popular boards from the community.
