This thesis analyzes the requirements and design considerations of a video teletraining (VIT) delivery system for 25 Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) centers located throughout the continental United States. Current DFAS VTT capabilities are reviewed and included. The study's sponsor, The Defense Business Management University (DBMU). bas been tasked by the DoD Comptroller to implement a training program for these centers. The DBMU has identified VTT as an extremely cost-effective option for training personnel at these 25 DFAS satellite adivities. The study focuses on current VTT technologies-both in industry and in the DoD. Basic VTT concepts are presented, evolving VTT standards are discussed, existing DoD VIT infrastructures are outlined, and problem areas such as system interoperability are explored. The study presents recommendations for an immediale DFAS VTT implementation plan using available DoD one-way/two-way satellite and/or two-way/two-way terrestrial distance education capabilities. This thesis also presents a recommendation for integration of a long term V1T network broadacast system including a single site program origination studio.
