Default ELINT Data Web App

Hi Heatblur and Viggen pilots,

Just want to share something that I've been working on for the Viggen. I made a web app to parse the ELINTData.info file and to plot that on a map. This will facilitate recon missions on the Viggen through the detection of enemy radar units.

I'm also working on creating some missions to make use of this app. General idea is to fly a recon route, rtb to load the data into the app for analysis, plan your own flight route to engage/avoid the threats.

For those who have seen my previous posts on Reddit, I've made some updates to the app.

I've just finished the unit detection part of the app so the app will identify the unit against a known database. I've also changed the map to show contour lines.

Do let me know what you think of it and how it can be improved. I'm looking to add mission planning into the app where a custom data cartridge can be generated to load into the Viggen.

https://elint-app.firebaseapp.com/

Mission File

I've created a mission (still in alpha) that uses the U22/A ECM pod with the elint web app. Note that this is the first mission I've ever created so please let me know how I can improve it. I'm still learning how to use the mission editor. I've attached a briefing document with a map of the threat area that will need 'scanning'.

Basic idea of the mission is to plan a route to scan the area for threats. Land back at base. Upload the elintdata.info file to the app. Anaylse the data, hopefully you picked up the EWR. Plan your flight to engage and destroy the EWR. You might need multiple recon passes to locate and destroy the EWR. You might wish to take out some AA defenses in between recon passes.

Note: This is not designed to be a realistic mission but as a recon/strike mission to fully utilize the Viggen recon capabilities and strike capabilities. Avoid using Tacview as it will reveal the units and spoil the need for recon. You should not need to restart the mission between recon passes. You can land, park, repair/rearm, take off.

Future updates: I'll need to add mission planning to the web app to fully support this mission. Right now mission planning will require manual entry into the Viggen. Mission planning will primarily support manual entry but also data cartridge generation. I also think this might be an interesting multiplayer mission.

Mission File v0.15: Download
Briefing Document v0.10: Download

Changelog:
v0.15
  • EWR detection improved by using detection script instead of trigger zone
  • Blue force now has SAM defenses at bases
  • Enemy fighters should no longer pursue you into your base area

Wow, that's awesome! Will definitely give it a shot.

Thanks for the comments. Do let me know if you’re keen on using it or are using it. That will help me to know how much time I should put into adding new features and keeping it up to date. I’ll try to post a Mission file soon.

Hello,
Is it somehow possible to create picture of possible sam places via using more elints? For example, if I am flying together with my buddies, everybody is carrying elint pod, is it possible to put all files from each pod into the one picture? For the better and more precise estimation of the position, where sams could be. Thank you.

Just awesome!

I've been working on a Excel sheet do work together with this website:
http://www.gpsvisualizer.com

However on the first version I had to type in °, Minutes, Seconds and N/E/S/W seperatly.
So I got mad at typing 20 coordinates and tried formatting the the Viggen Format (XX:XX:XX) into the format the website needs,... no chance with my skills.

You are my savior, excellent! The excel sheet goes to the bin now

At the moment the app doesn't clear previous plots when you try to upload a second file. You can just upload another file and it should overlay on top of what has been previously mapped out. You'll need to refresh the page to clear the map.

At the moment its an accidental feature but I'll be sure to keep this 'feature' in place one way of another.

Awesome! Ive been hoping to see something like this - such a great feature of the plane, but very little use at the moment. Will be testing this and looking forwards the missions.

This looks fantastic! I'm going to be flying the Red Flag campaign soon and this will be very useful. I will post some more feedback soon(ish)!
