AIS sentence generator (Linux)

Hi, I was wondering if there is any small program (pref. in Linux) that could, based on some pre defined parameters and the navigation information from a GPS, produce the standardised AIS sentences, AISVDM, etc.

I don't have an AIS transmitter aboard, but I do have a Utilite Arm computer running Linux and OpenCPN, and the idea was to have it produce such sentences, and then send them to using AIS dispatcher or something similar if not built in (usually I have a 3G connection).

I have searched but not really found any such program. Anyone has any leads?
