Web Services

OneSky provides a robust collection of analytical capabilities, and now developers can leverage these same analytics thanks to our collection of web services.  OneSky's growing API library puts systems modeling and prediction capabilities directly in the hands of developers, bringing safety-of-flight analytics to any enterprise solution or commercial development effort.   



Flexible Flight Plan Definitions

OneSky's web services offer multiple ways to define an operation's location and/or flight route.  Whether you want to simplify things with concepts like 'average velocity' or need more well-defined dynamic routes requiring individually time-stamped waypoints, our web services have you covered.  Flight plans also support well-known standard altitudes such as Mean Sea Level (MSL), Ellipsoid (WGS84), or even Above Ground Level (AGL) thanks to our global database of terrain.  Accurate analysis starts with precise locations and routes!


Simple Flight Areas

Define Single-Point Flight Volumes 


Waypoint Flight Paths

Multi-Point Flight Paths Representative of Autonomous Routes



Advanced Flight Plan Analytics

A growing selection of analytics help enhance both your understanding of the planned flight as well as the safety margins.  Understanding the impacts that terrain might have on visibility, the availability & precision you can expect from GPS satellites, or even communication link quality reports all increase awareness and bring a new perspective to flight planning.


Terrain Analytics

Global Terrain Data Enhances Analytics Across Entire Web Services Stack


Comm Systems

Define & Analyze RF Signals & Systems


Airspace Analytics

Understand Airspace Volumes, Proximity & Operation Restrictions


GPS/NAV Accuracy

Predicted Navigation Solution Quality



Example Applications

The flexibility of web service architecture means our analytics can be built into applications such as custom Ground Control Station software or other commercial applications looking to enhance their analytical capabilities.  The simple RESTful interface means that our powerful cloud-based analytics can be embedded into solutions with just a few lines of code.  


DroneDeploy users are taking advantage of OneSky's GPS/NAV modeling capabilities with the OneSky GPS Forecast app available on DroneDeploy's App Market.  Download it today for iOS/Android to get a quick-look forecast for GPS conditions over the next hour from any flight plan.  Explore and understand how things like 'Number of Satellites' or 'Position Accuracy' may change and fluctuate in a given location.  This is just one example of how OneSky's analytical web services can be used by existing solutions and bring new safety-of-flight awareness to UAS pilots.




Start using OneSky web services today!  You will have immediate access to all of the flight planning and safety analytics mentioned above.  Start exploring how OneSky can help take you further with increased flight plan safety analytics and enhanced situational awareness.
