Re: CRONUS conundrum

The FT article here throws a little more light on things... http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/2c7870de-7348-11e5-a129-3fcc4f641d98.html#axzz3pT9fzYud although I'm not sure about the claim about it being a world first , both Ikhana and Eurohawk have done similar and there have been daily sorties across the M...

Re: CRONUS conundrum

Other articles certainly suggest CRONUS was not fitted with detect and avoid equipment...but maybe you are right about the TCAS / Mode A/C idea Dave. The lack of detect and avoid equipment led to the demise of Eurohawk a couple of years ago , which as far as I recall had been flying through , if not...

Re: 445566

That would seem the logical observation , however the mlat was created by two clusters of ground stations.....one cluster of two GS in N Wales , the other cluster of three GS in northern Holland ! That would put a target well above 60000 feet to been seen over such a wide area.....but if that was th...

Re: 445566

Every couple of days we manage to pinpoint the "source" using mlat. Yesterday it was located at 1959 GMT 52.444985 6.717742 Langeveen, Netherlands . The bursts are only a second or so in duration , but the mlats seem accurate needing at least three stations to be seeing the signal simultaniously In ...

Re: 445566

Been a lot of chatter on the Mode S group and presently on the PlanePlotter group about this code Unlike the "Russian" codes , which have been located from time to time at comms mast sites , 445566 seems to pop up anywhere and from the most recent findings looks as though it might be an internally g...

Re: SBS 1 and viewing Flybe

Bear in mind that both Planeplotter , which was the original system to introduce Mlat for enthusiasts , and FR24 , show those FlyBee flights that are automatically located by the network , however only PlanePlotter gives you the ability to manually locate a/c that don't already show on screen. Its a...

Re: SBS1 AND Canadian Lanc

Certainly did Keith as many of our sharers on PP also secondary share their data with FR24. The only problem with FR24 is it doesn't show BARR flight info and also mil traffic , including the Red Arrows , BBMF etc. Planeplotter can do that as it is a private network , where the user has full control...

Re: SBS1 AND Canadian Lanc

you could be right there,I had not thought of that one. cheers The whole flight from the N W approaches to landing was covered by PlanePlotter The advantage here is that PP fills the gaps for you , not just at long range , but near to where your own receiver fails to pick up close targets due to sh...
