The CTS is a legacy application which is being re-written for release in mid-2017.

  • Clear distinctions will be made as to non-CNS guaranteed vs. not guaranteed.
  • New fields will be added to provide transparency.
  • Obsolete fields will be eliminated.
  • Auto Route output files will be sunset.
  • New query capabilities will be added.
