Major Programs at the National Guard

Distributive Training Technology Project is a distance-learning system for which the Guard has converted space at National Guard armories into high-tech classrooms linked via telecommunications equipment to a central teleconference facility. With two-way video and audio, it creates an interactive classroom for military and civilian studies. PCs in each room are connected to the Internet. The project spans 15 time zones and more than 3,000 communities.

Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System is a Defense-wide, unclassified information system that puts all military personnel and pay records into one system. The National Guard Bureau has developed network-compatible software for it because Guard personnel are paid differently from active-duty troops.

Reserve Component Automation System helps the Army manage and mobilize information for Army National Guard and Reserve forces more efficiently. RCAS links 10,500 Guard and Reserve units at 4,000 sites throughout the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Europe and the Pacific Rim.
