IMPORTANT: The Beast comes as a partly pre-assembled kit, where the 7 LEDs must be applied by the customer; soldering skills and equipment required. SMA and USB connectors are preassembled.

You may order a separate assembly service for the Beast Kit here.
There is an aluminium case available here.


The Mode-S Beast is a top performance ADS-B, Mode-S and Mode-A/C receiver and decoder, with outstanding performance.
The Mode-S Beast enables you to receive the positions of aircraft up to 450 km (225 nm) distance. Additionally, you just need an antenna and a PC with a free software for the visualization.
The USB connector is used for the data transfer to the PC and for power supply.

The concept of the Mode-S Beast is similar to that of a GPS mouse:
A versatile receiver, which is not limited to be used by only one proprietary software but giving any user the chance to take the software whatever prefered.

The Mode-S Beast supports two different binary formats to output raw frame data, either the "AVR-Format" or the more efficient “Beast-Binary-Format”. Both formats provide high resolution timestamps [1]. The Beast-Binary-Format contains additional signal level information.
The binary formats are supported by a variety of software, e.g., PlanePlotter and ADS-B Scope.

The Mode-S Beast optionally supports a 2nd receiver in order to receive signals from another source.
A possible application may be a separate high gain antenna directed into a hotspot, e.g., an airport.
A suitable second receiver is, for example, our miniADSB receiver.

[1]: The timestamps of the Mode-S Beast are counting with 12 MHz and are not GPS synchronized.
