TMS began to show its true potential, however, when scientists probed beyond the motor cortex.

There are several advantages to this, the most important of which is that it allows the programmer greater flexibility in designing and managing the TMS software.
Some of these enhancements include the capability of uploading the ITO and biographical information directly to the security assistance network (SAN), providing the ability to download the standardized training listing from within TMS, basing temporary living allowance calculations on actual school location data, extending the two year training plan to a seven year plan, and enhancing and adding several new reports.
