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 example will establish a connection to our SBS-1 server and will display only aircrafts which are registered in the Russian Federation. This will be done by a filterrule ( see homeradar_addfilter() ) for the ICAO24 identification code. This program will run until you press CTRL-C
