Abstract : This thesis is a nontechnical overview of the Base Information Transfer System (BITS). It will discuss the history, current status and implementation of BITS, a subarchitecture of a broad Navy program created to support Department of the Navy communications ashore. The intent is to consolidate various sources regarding BITS into one document and to provide information to aid in understanding how BITS relates to base communications. The study will define the scope of BITS and will explore how BITS implementation will interface with other Navy, military, and worldwide communications systems. This thesis is intended as a broad, informational guideline and may also be used for students of naval communications and for orientation purposes.
