The Defense Information System Network (DISN) will be the telecommunications infrastructure for all defense information systems in the future. Its architecture consists of three major building blocks: the transport infrastructure segment; a network management segment; and a value-added services segment. The transport infrastructure will be a high-speed broadband integrated services digital network (BISDN) in a hierarchical arrangement. The network management segment will be integrated in a hierarchically-distributed structure of geographically oriented domains. The value-added services segment is yet to be defined. This paper reports on the first focused work to do that. A definition for value-added services (VAS) is established; distinctions are drawn with other network capabilities and characteristics; twenty (20) candidate VASs meeting the definition are examined, especially with respect to military application; and seventeen (17) are recommended for implementation in the Goal DISN, c.2005+
