Crate sbd [−] [src]
Parse and write Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) messages.
One mode of transmitting data over the Iridium network is via Short Burst Data (SBD) messages.
These messages carry a payload of some small number of bytes, usually less than one thousand.
Messages can be Mobile-Originated (MO), meaning that they are sent from an Iridium modem, or
Mobile-Terminated (MT), meaning that the are sent to an Iridium modem. Mobile-Originated
messages are delivered either to an email address via MIME attachment, or directly to a given
IP address and port via TCP; this second method is called
This is a simple library for reading mobile originated SBD messages from a stream, decoding their headers and data payloads, and writing them back to a stream. This library does not handle mobile terminated messages.
MO messages can be read from a byte stream:
let mut file = std::fs::File::open("data/0-mo.sbd").unwrap(); let message = sbd::mo::Message::read_from(file).unwrap();
To receive MO messages via
DirectIP, a server is provided.
This server will listen for incoming messages forever, storing them in a
let storage = sbd::storage::FilesystemStorage::open("/var/iridium").unwrap(); let mut server = sbd::directip::Server::new("0.0.0.0:10800", storage); server.serve_forever();
Most of the functionality of this library is exposed by a single executable, named
sbd executable to inspect raw sbd files stores on a filesystem, interrogate sbd files on a
filesystem, and start that forever-running server to receive Iridium SBD
Receive incoming Iridium messages through their Direct IP service.
Module for reading and writing Mobile-Originated (MO) SBD messages.
Squirrel away SBD messages and retrieve them later.
