WMTS means Web Map Tile Service and you can find the standard from here https://www.ogc.org/standards/wmts.  WMS-T is time enabled Web Map Service (WMS) and how to use the time dimension is documented in WMS standards https://www.ogc.org/standards/wms. Are you interested in tiles or times?

  Your email got me thinking so I took the t off and made it a regular WMS query and I can get an image.  It looks like the WMS-T is just a WMS with a time field, not a protocol that will sequence the images..  So it looks like what we might need to  do is a postgis select with a time window or at least starting point then make separate queries to get the actual images. Does that sound right?

QGIS has a TimeManager plugin but it is updating the time display but not showing the images.  That is a different issue for a different forum.

There is no reason to believe that Mapserver supports WMTS at all https://www.mapserver.org/documentation.html#ogc.
Also in the query you used &SERVICE=WMST&version=1.1.1. “WMST” must be a typo and WMTS has only one published version 1.0.0. The error message from Mapserver is not especially bright, Geoservers do that better.
<ows:Exception exceptionCode="InvalidParameterValue" locator="service">
<ows:ExceptionText>No service: ( WMTS )</ows:ExceptionText>

You must install MapCache and configure it to use Mapserver as a WMS source. MapCache can do WMTS.

I am using the mapserver from the latest  MS4w.  When I query WFS and WMS GetCapabilities I get a normal xml reply.  When I do a  WMST GetCapabilities on the same server the OpenLayersViewer opens but is empty.  Viewing the web page source reveals java script but no xml information.

The query follows
