Is it a simple dongle in the Air!Squitter?

Published on by

Currently we're quite often asked if there is a dongle inside the Air!Squitter? No, there isn't!

The ADS-B receiver section of the Air!Squitter is equal to the Mode-S Beast and Radarcape. Both based on a FPGA and highly optimized SDR algorithm. Just we left some options away, like video out and antenna diversity.
A dongle based receiver never reaches the sensitivity of our receiver, and it never provides high precision...

What actually is Mode-A/C, Mode-S and ADS-B? A brief overview.

Published on by

Radar isn't a very old technology. Developed during WW2, it is 70 years old. Early radar was just to detect objects in the air. This was done by transmitting a powerful signal and waiting for the reflection from the flying object. The time between transmission and reception was twice the distance of the object. The position of the antenna provided the angular position. Something we still display even on modern systems. Such traditional systems are called prim...

Explaining Noise Figure and Gain

Published on by

We do see various offers for any kind of preamplifiers that are promising wonders, so let me give an explanation for the true important factors when using such devices. During my active time at ham radio I was very active in earth-moon-earth communication, that is sending signals to the moon and getting the echo back, up to 5.6 GHz, far beyond the ADS-B frequency of 1090 MHz. This is one of the most sophisticated operational modes in amateur radio, and nee...
