Plugging The Holes In Radar Coverage
Billy Cox

De Void will cop to slow-response reflexes but this one probably
takes The Clogged Artery Prize, because a nerve ending or a
synapse or whatever should've fired back in 2011. That's when,
in the aftermath of MUFON's published analysis of the UFO that
apparently buzzed President Bush's Texas ranch in 2008, the
Federal Aviation Administration decided to exempt ERIT from
public scrutiny.

ERIT, or En Route Intelligence Tool, gathers raw data from
individual radar sites collecting ping returns on everything
that flies in U.S. air space, and sometimes things that don't
fly at all. It's a bit of a jumble because it can pick up
everything - hills, contrails, storm turbulence, false echoes,
birds, etc. In fact, ERIT picks up so much extraneous material
that air traffic controllers usually don't see it. What shows up
on ATC screens instead are combined subsets of ERIT returns,
filtered by the FAA, which focuses largely on planes with
transponders. Low-flying helicopters and light aircraft
operating away from commercial airports and below the major sky-
traffic corridors aren't required to have transponders and
therefore don't light up the screens. UFOs aren't known for
packing transponder beacons, either.

Anyhow, in 2008, Glen Schulze and Robert Powell filed FOIAs with
a number of government acronyms, civilian and military, to
establish the UFO's path. The FAA supplied them with unfiltered
ERIT returns. The data not only substantiated eyewitness UFO
accounts of its southeasterly trajectory, it also confirmed
eyewitness reports of jet fighters in the area, which the Air
Force initially denied.

Later that same year,
