Onboard Network System SDK (737MAX & 777X)

Open a World of Possibilities

Improve the safety and efficiency of your operation

The Software Development Kit (SDK) for the Onboard Network Server (ONS) puts the power to create new software applications in your hands. The SDK contains all the documentation and software tools needed to develop, test, and deliver customized solutions for your operation. With the SDK, you can harvest the data to create applications that help improve the safety and efficiency of your operation.

The external client SDK supports the development of applications hosted on most computing platforms. The SDK enables airlines and others to securely access the services available from the Network File Server (NFS), such as printing, storage, and data exchange. Using the NFS, the airline can choose which data communications method best serves their business needs. Access to the NFS opens up new opportunities for improving airlines operations.

The NFS hosted SDK extends the external client SDK to enable hosting applications on the NFS. Hosting applications reduces the need to load software onto laptops, tablets, and desktops; NFS hosted applications are accessed like any other web page or web application. This reduces the need to manage the configuration of many individual devices.

The following ONS SDKs are currently available:

  • 737MAX Onboard Network System (ONS) Network File Server (NFS) BLE – External
  • 737MAX Onboard Network System (ONS) Network File Server (NFS) BLE – Hosted
  • 777X Onboard Network System (ONS) Network File Server (NFS) BLE – External
  • 777X Onboard Network System (ONS) Network File Server (NFS) BLE – Hosted

Available to customers who select the CIG Option for either the external client SDK or the NFS hosted SDK, the Crew Information Gateway SDK includes interface details, data structures, program flow and other significant details to implement Portable Electronic Device (PED) EFB applications to display content to the forward displays. This is accomplished via the CIG Proxy Function. The CIG Proxy Function formats and manages video imagery rendered by a client application rather than rendering its own video output.
