- AAQ-24 : A Directed Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) active electronic device that uses intense light to dazzle or burn out infrared missile seekers
- Air-to-surface missile : Launched from an fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter, missiles of this category have a wide variety of ranges, sensors, autonomy vs. man-in-the-loop control, warheads, and need for battle damage assessment
- Airborne Warning and Control System : An airplane that carries early warning radars, possibly weapons control radars, and communications to link it with combat aircraft and ground facilities. It may have an onboard battle staff, or link to a staff on the ground.
- C-40A Clipper : Derived from the Boeing 737 commercial airliner, a utility transport aircraft used by the United States Navy
- C3I-ISR : Command, control, communications and intelligence, combined with intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance
- Carrier Strike Group : In the U.S. Navy, the group of ships centered around a large aircraft carrier
- F-16 Fighting Falcon : A relatively lightweight land-based multirole fighter, developed by the United States Air Force; co-produced with Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal; operated by many nations and to be replaced by the F-35A Lightning II. The F-16CJ model is optimized for SEAD.
- Gravity bomb : A bomb with no supplemental propulsion, whose trajectory is determined by initial velocity and gravity, or by the action of aerodynamic control surfaces.
- Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance : The synchronization of information collection and analysis, variously to gain strategic understanding, to detect anomalies, or to actively probe for information
- Littoral Surveillance Radar System : An active electronically scanned array (AESA) surveillance radar, currently used on maritime patrol aircraft also used in littoral (military) and overland operation; the still highly classified system will go onto next-generation surveillance aircraft and provide targeting information to precision-guided munitions
- Maritime patrol aircraft : Very long range, usually land-based, aircraft optimized for sea surveillance, originally principally for anti-submarine warfare but often with anti-surface warfare capabilities; newer types also have land and littoral surveillance roles
- P-3 Orion : Land-based maritime patrol aircraft designed for the U.S. Navy; enhanced for littoral and land surveillance
- P-8 Poseidon : New maritime patrol aircraft, built on a Boeing 737 airframe for the United States Navy
- RC-135 family aircraft : A group of U.S. Air Force aircraft payloads for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance that share the basic KC-135 Stratotanker airframe
- Surface-to-underwater missile : A means of launching an antisubmarine torpedo from a surface ship, often by an unguided rocket booster, moving it at greater speed and range than possible for a torpedo in the water, and releasing the guided torpedo over the approximate location of the target
- Sympathetic magic : The cultural concept that a symbol, or small aspect, of a more powerful entity can, as desired by the user, invoke or compel that entity
- Transport aircraft : Fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, or tilt-rotor aircraft whose primary role is moving people or cargo; they may be armed for self-protection
