- AEGIS battle management system : An integrated system of computers, radars, and other systems that provides integrated management of a shipboard suite of strategic strike, anti-surface warfare, ballistic missile defense and anti-air warfare principally using missiles in vertical launch systems; it complements other integrated systems for anti-submarine warfare and naval gunfire support
- APG-78 : A U.S. Army millimeter wave radar system shared among the Longbow versions of the AH-64 Apache heavy attack helicopter, AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, and the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior scout helicopter
- Air, artillery and missile defense : An integrated approach to defending surface forces against all types of weapons that fly through the atmosphere or space; a radar may detect artillery shells, helicopters, or missiles, while a close-in gun may shoot down any of them
- Anti-air warfare : In the context of naval warfare, the mission of defending against aircraft and missiles, from platforms under naval command and control, possibly in coordination with other services and possibly defending land as well as sea areas.
- BGM-109 Tomahawk : A U.S.-designed cruise missile, launched from vertical launch systems on ships and submarines, against land targets
- Burke-class : Large U.S. Navy multirole destroyers equipped with AEGIS battle management system and constant upgrades; Japan has Kongo-class clones, also being upgraded to ballistic missile defense; South Korea has the KDK-class
- CEC (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Classified information : Material collected or created by a government that is subject to limitations on its release to the general public and may have penalties for its unauthorized release.
- Common operational picture : An electronically shared graphic of map of common interest, typically to military units, that can show more or less detail, and specialized information, on simple user command or even touch
- Compartmented control system : A set of controls, in addition to a regular national security classifications, that adds additional security restrictions to especially sensitive information
- Cruiser : While definitions vary with time and doctrine, a large warship capable of acting independently, as a flagship, or a major escort; capabilities include anti-air warfare, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, land attack, and possibly ballistic missile defense
- E-2 Hawkeye : Designed for the U.S. Navy and used by several other countries, this radar aircraft carries long-range airborne early warning and surface search radar, and has a modest force command & control capability, the latter enhanced by "virtual workstations" on linked ships
- E-3 Sentry : Airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft, equipped with a large radar and a battle staff, which can detect aircraft and control combat.
- Joint Tactical Information Distribution System : The primary communications system used for sharing tactical information internally, and among NATO, Australia, and other U.S. allies
- Mobile ad hoc networking : A family of mobile computing techniques in which not only the hosts move, sometimes at supersonic speed, but the routers and other devices organizing them into networks also move
- Peer-to-peer : Add brief definition or description
- Radio : Transmission and reception of information, which can be voice, data or imagery over electromagnetic radiation in free space (i.e., wireless). The information is modulated onto a carrier wave
- SPG-62 : In the AEGIS battle management system for anti-air warfare, this radar provides the final illumination for terminal guidance of an SM-2 surface-to-air missile
- SPS-49 : A long-range air search radar, part of the AEGIS battle management system only on Ticonderoga-class cruisers, not Burke-class destroyers; non-AEGIS use on Canadian Halifax-class frigates
- Self-organizing network : A set of cooperating elements that announce themselves, learn of other nodes of interest, and build interconnections, without the need for central control or manual administration.
- Ticonderoga-class : Modern U.S. Navy cruisers usually serving as carrier or amphibious escorts, but capable of independent action including long-range strike, anti-air/anti-ballistic missile/anti-satellite warfare, naval gunfire support, and antisubmarine warfare.
- U.S. Navy : The branch of the United States Armed Forces charged with sea operations
