(My bold.) Yes, that is how Flarm works.
What I am asking is how SkyDemon, Foreflight & others would present the information. Imagine a PAW equipped aircraft receiving these contacts from an OGN station; imagine a future with mandatory ADSB out.
How will the navigation software of the future cope with localised dense concentrations of traffic? How will it cope with a gaggle in the Abingdon gap between Benson & Brize? Suppose you route round the future Farnborough class D, keeping 2nm clear like the CAA recommend? Your track takes you straight through Lasham's traffic, how will the software cope with 20 or so contacts within 2km?
The current powered aircraft navigation software seems to rely mostly on proximity for collision avoidance, glider software relies exclusively on Flarm. What we need is navigation software that can differentiate between proximity & collision likelihood, that way your navigation device becomes input agnostic.
What I am asking is what exactly would the new SkyDemon (or Foreflight) say if I was in, or near, these aircraft:
