Have you tried downloading a trial of FME from safe software?  I think the license is good for about 60 days.  Have a universal viewer that will let you view your data in any format including DTED.  

Here is a list of supported formats:

Here is the link to download:

Hi Cwise

I didint try the FME software but I am doenloading now.
hopefully it'll work as I like it.
but it's size is very large, and also in need registration (not free) and work for 14 days not "60 days"

regarding the !stuff! you are taking about, I think DTED has three formats 0 ,1 and 2 and all has some diff. also level 0 is the only free to download.

sorry if make problem here.

No worries.  I use FME to process alot of our data into different formats or to change projections.  It is a good piece of software.  I have run into this problem in the past.  Most free peices of software really lack alot of functionality you are probably looking for.  DTED is not a very common GIS format that I have run across.  Kick the tires on FME a little.  Maybe you can talk your boss into it if it does the trick ;)

There is no free lunch. Earlier or latter it is going to be paid.

Have a look to returned links:
