Our extensive ground based ADS-B network, combined with our newest data source - Space Based ADS-B ensure that our customers receive 100% global coverage. This translates into guaranteed responses from our TCP API server when a client application queries the server. In an off case where the server is unable to provide a response, the client is not charged any credits.
