AirHub® API for Developers

AirHub API delivers community and national hazards, risk analytics, and more to your drone applications. We broker the connection between drone applications and the communities drones operate in to deliver the 'last mile' of data services and visualizations. Think of us as your community engagement specialists.

Top Use Cases

Real-Time Community Advisories

While the FAA provides the rules and regulations for airspace in the US, communities need the ability to publish local advisories to provide additional information to operators when planning their drone operations. Communities input these local advisories into the AirHub Connect platform, which can be provided through the AirHub™ APIs.

Operational Hazard & Risk

Hazard and risk assessment is an important part of the UAS ecosystem. The FAA publishes well established guidelines on how operations should behave with respect to population and other ground-based risk. This set of API resources will help developers quantify these hazards and their associated risk within a geographic boundary.

Logistics & Planning

For more advanced use cases, the AirHub™ APIs provide advanced logistical & planning tools such as complex routing algorithms; built on diverse suitability surfaces constructed from dozens of local and national datasets, weighted to meet the specific requirements of your operational parameters.

LAANC Deep Linking

To support commercial & recreational (LAANC) authorizations within 3rd-party applications, the API allows the creation of operations for deep-linking workflows. Each operation includes information such as pilot name and contact information, operation start time and duration, requested altitude, and the operation boundary (shape).
