Broadcasting Monitoring of SSR Transponders in Real Space

Vít Vojtěch, Stanislav Pleninger


The article presents a method that allows achieved the greater completeness of the record during the reconstruction of emitted SSR transponder messages captured by terrestrial receivers. The method is based on a fusion of records from several ground-based receivers. The second part of the article presents and evaluates the results achieved using this method on the network of the low-cost ADS-B receivers in the Department of Air Transport, Czech Technical University in Prague Faculty of Transportation Sciences. Some inevitable phenomena are demonstrated that this measurement method brings.
