ASTERIX Analyzer is a powerful tool to open, decode, analyze and inspect surveilliance data in Eurocontrol All Purpose STructured Eurocontrol SuRveillance Information EXchange (ASTERIX) format.
ASTERIX Analyzer allows you not only read ASTERIX data, but also make further analyzer on it.
It can also work with other tools in ASTERIX Toolkit, and give you a full capability from data recording, inspection, anlyzing to modification, generation and simulation.
The ASTERIX format defines different category for different type of surveillance.
ASTERIX Analyzer supports all commonly used ASTERIX categories, and different versions of some category. It will continue expand its capability to support more categories in future.
The supported categories and versions are:
|CAT001||Monoradar Target Reports||1.0|
|CAT002||Monoradar Service Messages||1.0|
|CAT008||Transmission of Monoradar Derived Weather Information||1.0|
|CAT019||Multilateration System Status Messages||1.2|
|CAT020||MLT Messages||1.7, 1.8|
|CAT021||ADS-B Messages||0.23, 0.26, 2.1|
|CAT023||CNS/ATM Ground Station and Service Status Reports||1.2|
|CAT034||Transmission of Monoradar Service Messages||1.27|
|CAT048||Transmission of Monoradar Target Reports||1.15|
|CAT062||SDPS Track Messages||1.7|
|CAT240||Radar Video Transmission||1.3|
Note: Most categories are backward compatible, which means if the version of your data is lower or equal to the version listed in the table above, it can be correctly decoded. CAT021 is one exception of this backward compatibility.
The ASTERIX standard defines all possible data items, but the existence and order of these data items are defined by User Application Profile (UAP).
ASTERIX Analyzer supports all standard UAP, and some widely used property UAPs defined by major ATC vendors.
The supported UAPs are:
Further more, ASTERIX Analyzer is able to analyze the data and automatically select a proper UAP to decode it. Normally user don’t need to worry about UAP selection.
ASTERIX Analyzer supports a various of different file formats, including both open and property format. It can read and analyze data from all supported file format, there is also one File Convertor tool to make conversion between these formats.
The supported file formats are:
Note 1: Some formats listed above may not appear in your application, it depends on your license type.
Note 2: Some more property formats are not listed here and supported only in customized/OEM version. Please contact us if you are interested in supporting property file format.
ASTERIX Analyzer is capable to decode Comm-B Data Selector (BDS) data embedded in some data items. It is useful as some important data (e.g. FMS selected altitude) is not defined by ASTERIX and the only way to retrieve it is from BDS.
The supported BDS are:
ASTERIX Analyzer has friendly HMI and allows you read, decode and inspect data.
It supports different types of data sources, including
And it supports different types of data frame, including
And there are two views to visually display data
Also there is a powerful scriptable Filter function allows you find and show only data you are interested.
Apart from veiwing the data, ASTERIX Analyzer has a set of tools to make further analyze on surveilliance data.
Data and analyze result can be exported into different formats, including
There is also a set of tools to expand the capability of ASTERIX Analyzer, including
