Andrews, Tacildayus. “Lack of a Designated National In-Transit visibility System Affects the Synchronization of Information Sharing and the Timely Distribution of Materials during Natural Disaster Efforts.” Master’s Thesis, Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, KS, 2010. http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p4013coll2/id/2678 (accessed 15 August 2011).
This thesis seeks to determine whether a unified, national in-transit visibility (ITV) system is necessary to ease operations during natural disaster relief. It demonstrates that the lack of such a unified system makes it difficult to effectively address problems and distribute relief materials in a timely manner in the aftermath of a natural disaster. Case studies of the New Hampshire hurricane in 1635, Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and Hurricane Katrina in 2005 are examined for potential insights.
