ADS-B XML Service
Understanding our ADS-B XML Service
The ADS-B Service Availability Prediction Tool (SAPT) is primarily an XML-based web service, most commonly used by flight planning software (including both custom and third party solutions).
If you or your company uses flight planning software from a third party vendor please contact them and ask that they incorporate our web service into their software.
For those who build and/or maintain your own flight planning software, you may obtain a copy of the SAPT Software Development Kit (SDK) which consists of documentation and the Web Service Description Language (WSDL) file for the SAPT web service. A WSDL file is a technical description of the software interface to a web service that can be used by software programmers to write software that can communicate with a web service. The SAPT WSDL allows the SAPT service to be integrated with your flight planning capabilities. Please note that the WSDL is not generally useful to end-users.
If you do not require a copy of the SDK/WSDL but would still like to be kept informed about changes to the SAPT service you may subscribe to our e-mail announcement list. This is a very low-volume mailing list that is used only for major announcements regarding changes to the SAPT service and web site.
If you have other questions not addressed here or would like to share some feedback regarding the SAPT service please contact us.
