The Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT) is a robotic 30-inch telescope dedicated to the search for supernovae and the monitoring of celestial objects. I will present the hardware and software control system of KAIT, together with some highlights from our supernova search and Gamma-Ray Burst monitoring programs.
