OpenSky network data feeder with in-build dump1090-mutability utils.

chart: opensky repo website

This application will collect parsed air traffic data and send it to OpenSky.

Prepare cluster

Before installing this app you need to select k8s worker which will have ADS-B USB Receiver connected. In particular you need to disable a few kernel drivers. SSH into the worker and run the following command:

sudo rmmod dvb_usb_rtl28xxu rtl2832 rtl2830

If you see something like this, you’re good.

rmmod: ERROR: Module dvb_usb_rtl28xxu is not currently loaded
rmmod: ERROR: Module rtl2832 is not currently loaded
rmmod: ERROR: Module rtl2830 is not currently loaded

Otherwise add a blacklist to prevent them from loading after reboot:

echo 'blacklist dvb_usb_rtl28xxu blacklist rtl2832 blacklist rtl2830' > /etc/modprobe.d/block.conf
