Auto-populated based on Special:WhatLinksHere/MIL-STD-1553. Needs checking by a human.
- AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon : A U.S. precision-guided munition, originally an unpowered guided bomb with much greater gliding range than the cheaper Joint Direct Attack Munition; powered variants with more extensive capabilities are in development
- AGM-88 HARM : A specialized anti-radiation missile used by U.S., Italian, and German aircraft to attack air defense radar
- ALE-47 : An intelligent countermeasures dispenser for military aircraft, which can receive commands directly from warning receivers, and dispense expendable radar and infrared decoys, as well as manage a retrievable decoy towed via an fiber optic cable
- ALQ-131 : A pod-mounted intelligent radar jammer of 1990 vintage, with capabilities against both continuous wave and pulse radar in different frequency bands
- ALQ-184 : A 1990s-vintage multiband radar jammer, in current use, that can use the AN/ALE-50 towed decoy, used by the U.S. and Taiwan
- ALQ-213 : A Danish Air Force-designed electronics countermeasures suite controller used on aircraft of many countries
- ARC-164 : The standard U.S. and NATO UHF radio for military air-to-air and air-to-ground communications, compatible with the HAVE QUICK II electronic protection scheme; it is not a Joint Tactical Radio System device although JTRS units will interoperate with it
- ASQ-213 : A pod-mounted anti-radiation missile targeting system for the AGM-88 HARM, originally for F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters but adaptable to any aircraft with the MIL-STD-1553 electronic interface
- Anti-aircraft artillery : A general term for guns that can elevate to high angles and shoot accurately at aircraft, using visual, electro-optical, or radar guidance.
- Avionics : Electronic components and subsystems integrated into the core functions of an aircraft.
- BaE Systems ALARM : A anti-radiation missile developed by the Royal Air Force, with direct attacks and parachute-borne loiter mode, slower than the U.S. AGM-88 HARM but with more advanced search and suppression capabilities
- CH-47 Chinook : Medium transport helicopter developed by the U.S. Army and used by a wide range of countries
- 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-8 Joint STARS : A radar aircraft optimized for surveillance of a large land or sea area, returning both tracks and identification of moving vehicles, or radar imaging of the surface.
- Electronics countermeasures suite controller : A computer aboard a protected vehicle, which both aids in situational awareness of weapon and sensor threats to the vehicles, and reduces crew workload in countering the threats. Practical implementations usually include at least one electronic warfare function in the controller, such as a radar warning receiver or electronic warfare expendables dispenser.
- F-15E Strike Eagle : A variant of the F-15 Eagle air superiority fighter, which is optimized for all-weather attack on ground targets
- 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.
- F-18 Super Hornet : A new generation of carrier-based fighter beyond the F-18 Hornet, this evolution provides an architecture with even greater expansion, especially with the AN/APG-79 AESA radar, more powerful computers and communications, and a new engine with longer range.
- F-35 Joint Strike Fighter : A family of 5th generation multirole fighter, being developed in versions to operate from conventional airfields, in short takeoff and vertical landing for small carrier and forward-based land operations, and in carrier-capable conventional takeoff and landing.
- Form factor : Physical size of a device including linear dimensions, mounting and connector standards, and other parameters that categorize the item as belonging to a mechanically compatible family.
- HAVE QUICK II : A family of military UHF jam-resistant radios, intended for air-to-air and air-to-ground use
- Joint Tactical Information Distribution System : The primary communications system used for sharing tactical information internally, and among NATO, Australia, and other U.S. allies
- Line Replaceable Unit : A component of a complex system, such as an aircraft or mobile radar, which can be replaced, in the field, quickly and using few tools. Families of such components minimize the number of form factors and connectors used.
- Local area network : A range of techniques for interconnecting multiple computers, over physical media such as wire or over wireless radio, within a limited geographic area, typically multiples of 100 meters.
- M1 Abrams (tank) : Heavily armed and armored but expensive and heavy, main battle tank, designed for the United States Army, and used by the United States Marine Corps and several allies; proven from the Gulf War onwards.
- M109 howitzer : A family of self-propelled 155mm howitzers developed by the U.S. Army
- M2 Bradley (armored fighting vehicle) : A family of armored fighting vehicles, with roles including infantry fighting vehicle, scouting, forward observer, and other functions in a platform sufficiently survivable to accompany the M1 Abrams tank, although needing more protection
- MC-130 COMBAT SPEAR : Evolutionary upgrade of the MC-130H COMBAT TALON II, with improved avionics, structure, and ability to support CV-22 Ospreys as well as helicopters
- Medium access control : The set of protocols and administrative conventions that let multiple computers or communications devices share a common network medium, usually referring to a local area network medium, but also an area of radio communications on a given part of the electromagnetic spectrum
- RC-135 RIVET JOINT : A United States Air Force long-range aircraft for collecting communications intelligence
- Suppression of enemy air defense : Military actions taken to reduce the effectiveness, or destroy, the radars, radio and other communications links, surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft artillery, fighter aircraft and their airbases and command posts of air defense systems
- Transponder : A device, used in navigation, air traffic control, Safety of Life at Sea, and military operations (e.g., Identification-friend-or-foe which, when interrogated by an appropriate radio or radar signal, replies with its identification and other relevant navigation data
- United States Air Force : One of the uniformed services of the United States, with principal responsibility for land-based long-range and high-performance aircraft, as well as land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles
