  • International Atomic Energy Agency [r]: An international organization established in July 1957, which seeks to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy and to inhibit its use for military purposes. [e]
  • Defense Threat Reduction Agency [r]: U.S. Department of Defense organization whose origins trace back to the first nuclear training, which acquired arms control and counterproliferation responsibilities, and has diversified from nuclear only to add chemical and biological portfolios [e]
  • Measurement and signature intelligence [r]: A variety of intelligence gathering disciplines complementary to the technical "mainstream" of imagery intelligence and signals intelligence. [e]
  • Materials MASINT [r]: A discipline involving the measurement of signatures from the collection, processing, and analysis of gas, liquid, or solid samples; it complements technical intelligence: a technical intelligence analyst would work with a captured example of the weapon, or at least pieces of it, to come to that understanding of the propellant, while an analyst of this technique would infer the propellant through analysis of the exhaust [e]
  • Electro-optical MASINT [r]: A subdiscipline of measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT), which has similarities to but complements imagery intelligence (IMINT); it does not form images, but validates them and produces information on phenomena that emit, absorb, or reflect electromagnetic energy in the infrared, visible light, or ultraviolet spectra, where the value is knowledge of the type of energy detected [e]
  • Radiofrequency MASINT [r]: Collection and processing of intelligence information derived from unintentional electromagnetic radiation from targets of interest [e]
  • Geophysical MASINT [r]: 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. [e]
  • Imagery intelligence [r]: 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 [e]
  • Direct action (military) [r]: Military attacks, usually by special operations forces on land, against specific, well-defined targets, often behind enemy lines. [e]
