This thesis examines alternatives for conducting video teleconferences (VTC) within the Department of Defense (DOD). The three major areas examined include the Defense Commercial Telecommunications Network (DCTN), Federal Telecommunications System 2000 (FTS2000), and satellite VTC. All three alternatives are examined to identify discriminating features, including differentiating by cost components where possible. The thesis provides a basic introduction to VTC, including an explanation of VTC terminology and a discussion of VTC standards. The thesis looks at VTC within DOD, including some history, current applications and directives in effect. Several prominent DOD VTC networks are described. This research finds that each VTC method examined contains advantages that support its continued existence in the near-term. This thesis concludes that the variety of DOD applications justifies the divergent methods for employing VTC, until a DOD-wide standard communications infrastructure is in place
