This thesis analyzes the changes within the Global Transportation Network (GTN)/In Transit Visibility (ITV) feeder systems and the subsequent ITV they provide by comparing the current position to the past and by examining future trends. Up until now, there has been no definitive documentation showing the initial inception or the subsequent improvements that have taken place in developing the GTN and feeder systems. The inception of the GTN is documented, including some of the "proof of concept" prototypes. The operational prototypes and production systems are also analyzed, including the feeder systems used in the GTN and how the GTN performed during operation Desert Shield/Storm. USTRANSCOM's vision of the future GTN, up to FY04, is explained along with the authors' view of possible future GTN capabilities.
