ADS-B equipment guide

If you are interested in buying ADS-B equipment, we recommend the Radarcape. This is the same hardware that we use around the world. It contains a BeagleBone board (ARM CPU) and the powerful Linux system can host applications to pre-process data. A build-in GPS receiver is used as timebase and provides high resolution timestamps for received frames which can, for example, being used for precision multilateration.

Don't forget to feed data to Flightradar24 after you have purchased your Radarcape. By feeding data to us, you get access to Flightradar24 Premium.
