Abstract : This thesis provides a comprehensive study of data compression standards used by both the military and commercial industry. Text, still imagery, video and audio compression are discussed. Several of the military standards described appear to be lacking in both performance and technology when compared to the international standards available. International standards could support the objectives as well as the functionality of the Global Command and Control System. The international standards could also provide better long term interoperability and information exchange capabilities than the currently available military standards.
