Subject:Development of Apps with OS X Airport Extreme in Monitor mode

My question is the following: How does kismet put the airport extreme in monitor mode (and KisMAC, which also does it)?

Lets take OS X Snow Leopard. Does kismet use a reverse engineered firmware for the airport Card? If yes, how do I get it?

My ultimate purpose is to allow the use of packet manipulation tools such as scapy or pcapy (in Python), to receive and parse the received packets in monitor mode. Any hints on how I achieve this goal?
