How it works

SITATEX SDK, an optional feature available with SITATEX® IP, provides an interface between SITATEX message queues and a user-developed messaging application.

SITATEX SDK can run on the same personal computer (PC) as the messaging application or on separate PCs, connected to a LAN file server, meaning the PCs can share a folder on the file server.

SITATEX® IP is a client-based software application that generates and receives Type B messages – the standard format for messaging in the aviation industry. SITATEX IP allows messages and documents to be sent over the internet, corporate IP networks and dial-up connections.


  • Runs on any operating system
  • In-built traffic regulation to prevent system overloads
  • Keyword library for rapid mapping of Type B messages
  • Once configured, runs in unattended mode
  • Does not require changes or programming of applications
