The optimization of information management resources is crucial to Navy information processing. Multimedia's innate ability to place complex concepts into forms that are more naturally familiar to the user has a relevant role to play in the optimization process. Before this optimum state can be attained, however, knowledge of the present state and a vision of the desired target state are needed. To this end, this thesis reviews recent developments and emerging trends in distributed multimedia applications. It first examines the breadth of the field with the intent of identifying those multimedia applications that have the greatest potential for adaption to U.S. Navy use. The focus then narrows to applications that are currently employed by Navy distributed systems. Strategic thinking, with an emphasis on cost, goals, and return on investment, should always be the basis for considering any new information system. The effects of change on personnel should be a principal concern. Finally, optimization will not occur without a high degree of cooperation at all levels of the military.
