They also have Primary CAIT to highlight non-transponder traffic entering CTR space. For the ladies and gents actually at the radars it's a safety/legal tool to allow them to maintain the internationally agreed minimum separation from the traffic under their control.

What the higher management think may indeed be something more political but I've never had the opportunity to speak to one of them so I can't guess (well, I can guess but it would be uninformed).

I do think the drone companies have been clever though by makiing the first autonomous flights over any significant distances carry humanitarian & medical payloads. It's so much more difficult to object to those than it would be to Amazon delivering trivia to rich people's abck gardens.


Cross Country Pilot
Just bought a trig gps for my transponder from someone who bought it with the rebate and sold it for what he paid, so half price. Have just bought a pilot aware rosetta with external antenna for which I'll claim my own rebate. Both will need installing in the new year once I've figure out where to install and how.
CAIT - controlled airspace infringement tool. It's a bit of software that highlights an infringers radar return on the ATC radar display. It needs height information of course - without that the infringer might be underneath or above the controlled airspace and so not infringing. Actually this is a red herring at the moment as very few ATC radars can see ADSB - but this will change.
I was led to believe that CAIT would log mode-S?
