  • Ballistic Missile Early Warning System [r]: U.S. Air Force system for tracking ballistic missile trajectories over the north polar regions [e](BMEWS)
  • Electro-optical tracking [r]: The use of electronics, possibly in combination with mechanical positioning systems, to aim an optical system at a source of infrared, visible, or ultraviolet light, and follow it for purposes of observation or weapons guidance [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]
  • 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]
  • AN/FPQ-16 [r]: originally the Perimeter Attack Radar Characterization System for the cancelled Safeguard ballistic missile defense, now a fixed ground radar with a space surveillance mission [e]
