API access

Hi, I did a cursory search but didn’t see what I was looking for…

I actually have two questions.

#1. is it possible through the API to get a stream of data for a particular geoloc and the surrounding area say out to 250nm and have it output to .kml so I can import it into GE? in realtime?
#2. has anyone investigated actually rcving from an aireon sat the repeated ads-b data via an RTL-SDR and a Pi?

  1. If you are looking for real time streaming data, you would need Firehose.
  2. The Sats are not repeating ADSB data back out from the receiving sat. The data is carried over the network then to a downlink site, but that data would not be in the form of 1090 data that could be picked up by a receiver.
