I was performing the duties of an OJT instrument, working with a developmental controller. Traffic was moderate. An small transport was switched from tower to departure frequency, IFR to pah at 8000'. The departure was radar idented and was instructed to turn right on course and to climb and maintain 8000'. The small transport proceeded on course and later it was discovered that he was still on his inbound transponder code. No departure message was sent. The next communication was made in another facility airspace. No radar handoff to ZME, no flight plan information available. No other aircraft was involved. A deviation within the air traffic system occurred.

Title: ACFT PENETRATED ADJACENT AIRSPACE WITHOUT HANDOFF.
Narrative: I WAS PERFORMING THE DUTIES OF AN OJT INSTR, WORKING WITH A DEVELOPMENTAL CTLR. TFC WAS MODERATE. AN SMT WAS SWITCHED FROM TWR TO DEP FREQ, IFR TO PAH AT 8000'. THE DEP WAS RADAR IDENTED AND WAS INSTRUCTED TO TURN RIGHT ON COURSE AND TO CLB AND MAINTAIN 8000'. THE SMT PROCEEDED ON COURSE AND LATER IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT HE WAS STILL ON HIS INBND XPONDER CODE. NO DEP MESSAGE WAS SENT. THE NEXT COM WAS MADE IN ANOTHER FAC AIRSPACE. NO RADAR HDOF TO ZME, NO FLT PLAN INFO AVAILABLE. NO OTHER ACFT WAS INVOLVED. A DEVIATION WITHIN THE AIR TFC SYS OCCURRED.
