libhomeradar - easy collect aircraft informations

libhomeradar is an easy to use library for all type of programming language which can use libraries. libhomeradar can connect to different sources to collect aircraft informations arround the world with extended informations, powerful filtering and structured data access.

libhomeradar is written in C and is available for Linux and Windows (2003, XP, NT, Vista).

Currently libhomeradar works with the Kinetic Avionics SBS-1 base station and the Airnav Systems Radarbox.

This program will only initialize the libhomeradar handle but we will not add any hosts. Here you see the database lookups which can be made by libhomeradar. To enable database lookups you should load the databases during the homeradar_init() call or with the homeradar_load_databases() function.
