In this paper we outline a prototype system assembled to improve situational awareness during a large public-safety event. This was done by integrating the use of SIGFOX TM devices into a pre-existing Amateur Packet Reporting System (APRS) systems and infrastructure. As the use of APRS mapping is well established at this event already, the most straightforward way to present the data was through existing systems. Lastly, we explain how ultra-low-power embedded systems based on SIGFOX devices were integrated and how they performed during a live trial.
