Receiving and decoding AMDAR and ADS-B Mode S Meteorological data

Post by estario » Sun Dec 30, 2018 11:20 am

Hi,
I have been reading about receiving upper air temperature, wind speed and direction from aircrafts using AMDAR and ADS-B data.
http://bibliotheek.knmi.nl/knmipubTR/TR336.pdf
https://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/www/GOS/ABO/AMDAR/
This is a good explanation of the way temperature and wind are measured - http://mode-s.knmi.nl/
I am not able to find a simple how to tutorial. Is there any ready to use software with clear instructions how to set up the system?
I was also wondering if it would be possible to access flight radars data somehow and calculate the values as they are already present there.
