APRS Cursor-on-Target Gateway.

Project description

aprscot receives APRS Frames from APRS-IS and outputs them in Cursor-on-Target XML Formatted events, for use with COT systems such as RaptorX, Falconview, etc.

Currently only supports APRS-IS and Location-type APRS messages, and only sending to UDP COT Hosts.

More features and capabilities TK, let me know what you’re looking to build!


The following example forwards all APRS Frames within 100 meters of W2GMD-9’s last known location to the Cursor-on-Target host at port 18999 (UDP):

aprscot -c W2GMD-9 -p xxx -C -f m/100

Example Cursor-on-Target Event

Here’s what a COT message from aprscot looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?>
<event version="1.0" type="a-f-G-E-V-C" uid="APRS.W2GMD-15"
       time="2017-05-24T20:53:23.059489Z" how="h-e">
  <point lat="37.693" lon="-121.72716" hae="10" ce="10" le="10" />
