SecureTrack Use Case Examples
Building a Virtual Radar
Our API can be used to feed your virtual radar application with tracking data. It will allow you to focus on building a user interface that meets your (or your customer’s) requirements instead of dealing with the complexity of building a network or collecting and processing the vast amounts of surveillance data. Simply connect your GRX receivers to our platform or get readily available data from SeRo and integrate the real-time air picture into your application.
For almost all use cases, we recommend using the
GetTargetReports call (see Overview for more information). You will get all ADS-B data (including position and heading of all aircraft) as well as MLAT data in a convenient ready-to-use format.
Get Your Receivers’ GPS Locations
If you want to display your network of GRX receivers on a map or if you simply want to monitor the health and quality of your GRX’s GPS synchronization, you can do so via the
GetSensorInfo API call (see Overview for more information). The response will contain all you need to know, including, but not limited to, GPS position, altitude and number of GPS satellites your receiver is currently seeing.
Collect Mode S Data for certain Transponders
If you are interested in collecting low-level Mode S data on targets tracked by your network, you can use our
GetModeSDownlinkFrames API call (see Overview for more information). This call will allow you to subscribe to all Mode S (including 1090ES ADS-B) signals received by your sensors in a convenient way.
We recommend using filters (e.g., downlink format filter for DF 17 for ADS-B) to reduce the data volume. Depending on the number of receivers you have access to and their locations, a single receiver can easily generate over 2000 data points every second. Processing such a large amount of data is not trivial!
