How many more TMZ's would you suggest. To go alongside the current shambles we currently have.
Would there be consultation, other than the lip service that we currently have?
An earlier contributor mentioned that PAW introduced yet another system, it did when there was NO other intelligently priced option available in the UK, when did SE appear in the UK?
I remember clearly a man from the CAA holding up his mobile phone ,(NOT smart phone), at a pilot's briefing telling the audience that the expected MLAT device would be about the size of the phone and at a reasonable price. Nothing happened because the tech did not exist nor the funding to go with it.
This is what happens on may occasions when it is left to market forces, don't mix too well with government policies.
We did end up with a device about the size of his phone, but not the expected one.
