PlanePlotter receives and decodes live digital position reports from aircraft and plots them on a chart. It 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. PlanePlotter shows a table display of messages received and decoded from live aircraft transmissions. PlanePlotter archives all the digital data that it receives and decodes, to a log file.

PlanePlotter plots aircraft positions, altitudes and times decoded from the message traffic that it receives. These include embedded position reports, AMDAR reports, ADS reports, HFDL reports and others.

PlanePlotter can decode ACARS messages, display the message content and plot any positions on a chart.
PlanePlotter can process and display Mode-S ADS-B position reports captured by the Kinetic SBS1 mode-S receiver and the associated BaseStation software or by the AirNav Systems RadarBox receiver.

PlanePlotter Features:
1. Message display
PlanePlotter shows a table display of messages received and decoded from live aircraft transmissions.
2. Data saving
PlanePlotter archives all the digital data that it receives and decodes to a log file.
3. Chart display
PlanePlotter plots aircraft positions, altitudes and times 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(tm) or AirNav System RadarBox(tm) Mode-S receivers, and position reports on HF using Charles Brain's PC-HFDL software.
4. 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-time view from the flight deck of an aircraft that you designate.
5. Direction finding
PlanePlotter can determine 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.
6. Input signals
PlanePlotter can decode ACARS messages, display the message content and plot any positions on a chart.
7. GPX overlays
PlanePlotter can display waypoints, tracks or routes over the current chart using data from a user-defined GPX format file.
8. Alerts
PlanePlotter can generate visible and audible alerts on detection of a specified registration, flight number or ADS identifier, on detection of any new aircraft, or on detection of an aircraft whose position is inside a user-defined Alert zone polygon.
9. Memory-Map Navigator support
PlanePlotter can direct the Memory-Map Navigator program (www.memory-map.com) to display dynamic aircraft position symbols over its proprietary maps using data from either ACARS or Mode-S ADS-B (in conjunction with the SBS1 receiver).
10. OLE/COM interface
You can access the position and other data for each aircraft known to PlanePlotter using a simple VB script or other OLE/COM capable program. You can use the same interface to update data held by PlanePlotter and to control the user interface.
11. DDE access
You can access ACARS, HFDL and Mode-S messages received by PlanePlotter using DDE. This facility makes PlanePlotter an ideal front end for other ACARS software.
12. Peer-to-peer output
PlanePlotter can send its message data to another remote instance of PlanePlotter using UDP/IP datagrams. You can send ACARS messages, HFDL messages, Mode-S (ADS-B) messages and Direction finding measurements so that another computer displays the same data as your computer.
13. Peer-to-peer audio
PlanePlotter can send audio to another remote instance of PlanePlotter using UDP/IP datagrams. This means that a remote user can hear the ATC instructions that you are hearing on your local air band receiver.
14. Internet sharing
PlanePlotter can send its message data to a shared server so that messages that you have received locally (ACARS, HFDL or ADS-B), can be seen by other PlanePlotter users in different areas. In this way, each user enjoys the reception coverage of all the cooperating users together. Consult the software licence for the special terms and conditions applicable to this feature.
15. HF selcal decoding
PlanePlotter can decode HF selcal tones that can be used to identify an aircraft communicating on the HF air bands. No position reports are carried by HF selcal but it provides yet another means of monitoring aircraft that PlanePlotter can perform.
16. Report generator
PlanePlotter can generate a text file containing user-defined data fields for aircraft received during the session.
17. Movie generator
PlanePlotter can generate an AVI movie file showing a speeded up version of the display window. You can review aircraft movements, including those received by sharing, at a later date by playing the AVI file in, for example, Windows Media Player.
18. Graphical file output
PlanePlotter can generate a JPG graphic file of the current window at regular intervals. You can use the same file repeatedly (to upload it to a web page, for example) or a succession of sequential file names for later processing. It can also generate a time-lapse AVO movie file of any of the display screens.
19. Localizing aircraft without positions
PlanePlotter can even give you an idea of where aircraft are that are not radiating positions. By combining the information from all the sharers who are receiving the aircraft, Planeplotter can shade in the area on the chart in which the unknown is located.
20. Automatic registration from 24-bit hex code
Although Mode-S ADS-B messages do not include the aircraft registration letters, PlanePlotter can can determine the registration letters algorithmically, from the 24-bit hex address, for most aircraft registered in France, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Yugoslavia, Russia, South Africa, Australia, Canada and United States.
21. Multilateration of aircraft without ADS-B
Some aircraft transmit Mode-S messages without transmitting the ADS-B formats that include position.
22. SMS Alerts
You can configure PlanePlotter to send details of aircraft that trigger your specified alerts, to a mobile phone number as a text message. This feature requires you to specify your mobile phone number and to buy message credits for the texts that you want to receive using this link.
23. Shell Alerts
You can configure PlanePlotter to run any batch file or application whenever an Alert occurs. For example, you can make it send an email to a chosen address whenever a user-defined alert occurs..
24. My Sky View
PlanePlotter is able to display a perspective view of the sky, as seen from your home location. It allows you to make positive identification of aircraft contrails during the day and of aircraft strobe lights at night. The daytime view shows the position of the Sun and Moon and the nighttime view shows the Moon, bright stars and planets for reference purposes.
25. Manual Position Reports
You can insert position reports that you have heard (eg reports from oceanic crossings picked up on HF) and PlanePlotter will plot the aircaft on the chart and, if the format includes the next waypoint, will calculate its ongoing track between the waypoints.
26. Hypersharing
PlanePlotter sharing normally updates once per minute. Hypersharing increases the refresh rate to once per second for a designated aircraft, depending on the availability of suitable Ground Stations. Hypersharing is only available to Master Users.
27. NoniMapView support
PlanePlotter can read maps generated by NoniMapView including satellite images and roads from Google, Yahoo, OpenStreetMaps and Virtual Earth.
