  • Laser designator [r]: A device that puts a distinctive, usually invisible, pattern of laser energy on an object, for purposes such as designating the target of a laser-guided bomb [e]
  • Precision-guided munition [r]: A powered or unpowered weapon that adjusts its flight path to hit a specific target, with a circular error probability in the low number of meters, often less than the radius of destruction [e]
  • Glide bomb [r]: An unpowered air-delivered weapon whose trajectory is not defined purely by gravity and air resistance, but by aerodynamic lift and steering; modern versions are guided bombs. [e]
  • Go-onto-target [r]: A guidance paradigm in which the sensor follows a potentially moving signal from the target, rather than going to a set of predefined geographic coordinates [e]
