- Geophysical MASINT : A branch of measurement and signature intelligence that involves phenomena transmitted through the earth (ground, water, atmosphere) and manmade structures including emitted or reflected sounds, pressure waves, vibrations, and magnetic field or ionosphere disturbances.
- Glider : Type of unpowered aircraft that uses aerodynamic lift to slow its rate of descent.
- Helicopter : Aircraft with one or more power-driven horizontal rotors, each rotor consisting of two or more rotor blades, that enable it to take off and land vertically, move in any direction, or remain stationary in the air.
- Hindenburg (LZ-129) : Large German commercial passenger-carrying rigid airship, the lead ship of the Hindenburg class, the largest flying machines of any kind ever built, until destroyed by fire on 6 May 1937.
- Hot air balloon : Buoyant aircraft which uses a nonporous envelope of thin material that is filled with heated air capable of lifting a suspended payload into the atmosphere.
- Hybrid airship : Aircraft that combines characteristics of heavier-than-air (fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter), and lighter than air (airship), technology.
- Imagery intelligence : the practice of taking and interpreting visible and infrared light photographs and video, radar imagery, and other ways to form pictures of subjects of interest
- International Space Station : A space station currently in earth orbit assembled collaboratively by the space agencies of many nations.
- Lift (force) : Force created on an object that is perpendicular to its direction of motion as it moves through a fluid.
- Lightning : An atmospheric discharge of electricity accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms.

- Space debris : Man-made objects in earth orbit that no longer serve any useful purpose.
- Tailhook : Hook on the underside of some aircraft which catches an arresting wire for short distance landings.
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicle : Powered aircraft, which do not carry humans and can be either remote-controlled by human operators or operate under its own computer control, and can carry lethal or nonlethal payloads (i.e., weapons and sensors)
- Zeppelin : A type of rigid airship pioneered by German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin in the early 20th century.
