this describes a dbus-service. How to implement it, depends on the 
language you are using. Here an example using the dbus-send in the terminal:

bus-send --system --type=method_call --dest="com.nokia.mce" 
--print-reply /com/nokia/mce/request com.nokia.mce.request.get_device_mode

The reply is the device mode as a string. But with mce you can just 
switch between "normal", "flight" and "offline" mode. I will try to 
figure out if and how you can select the other profiles.
