- AN- : U.S. military nomenclature for electronic equipment, following the Joint Electronics Type Designation System
- Air defense artillery : A combat arms branch of the United States Army, responsible for defending ground forces and the continental United States against aircraft and missile attack
- Anti-ballistic missile : A guided missile that is capable of destroying a ballistic missile, usually by "hit-to-kill" physical collision during boost phase, midcourse, or terminal phase of the target's trajectory
- Anti-radiation missile : A guided missile that attacks radar transmitters
- Anti-satellite missile : A weapon, launched from inside the atmosphere, intended to destroy an orbiting satellite.
- Arrow (missile) : A high-altitude anti-ballistic missile, co-developed by Israel and the United States, intended to engage theater ballistic missiles above the range of the complementary MIM-104 Patriot
- Ballistic missile defense : A combination of sensors, command and control systems, and missile/warhead kill mechanisms that protect a region, or, in the case of the U.S., theaters of operations as well as the nation proper.
- Battle damage assessment : Determination of the effects of application of lethal or nonlethal military force; made up of physical damage assessment, functional damage assessment, and target system damage assessmeny
- Counter-rocket, artillery and mortar : Military equipment and techniques to detect unguided rockets, artillery shells, and mortar rounds in flight, warn friendly forces that are threatened, and, with new methods, intercept and destroy the projectiles before they can do damage
- Forward Area Air Defense : A U.S. military command and control system for managing air defense, which includes both artillery/air deconfliction and counter-rocket, artillery and mortar missions, near the main battle line, typically under brigade control
- Guided missile : A weapon that flies through air or space, under its own power, which adjusts its course to hit its target.
- Gulf War : The conflict started by the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, and ended with the liberation of Kuwait and major damage to Iraqi forces, by a US-led UN coalition in 1991.
- Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck : Standard modular heavy truck series for the United States Army
- Hit-to-kill : The infliction of damage by a weapon, which does not depend on other than mechanical energy transfer. At the low end, it can be as simple as a bullet hitting a nonmoving target, and at the high end, it can include the immense energies of a collision between an incoming ballistic missile and an intercept vehicle. It is a subset of kinetic kill, which includes explosives and other physically destructive "hard kill" mechanisms.
- Integrated air defense system : An air defense that combines radar, anti-aircraft artillery, surface-to-air missiles, and fighter aircraft, presenting multiple layers of defense under systematic command and control
- Israeli Defense Forces : The combined ground, air, and naval armed forces of the state of Israel
- Joint Tactical Information Distribution System : The primary communications system used for sharing tactical information internally, and among NATO, Australia, and other U.S. allies
- : A Russian-designed anti-radiation missile (NATO designation: AS-17C Krypton-C} optimized to attack the U.S. MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile; the PRC-licensed version is the YJ-91
- Kongo-class : Destroyers currently in service with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (i.e., Japanese Navy), which are licensed copies of the U.S. Burke-class and are being upgraded for ballistic missile defense
- MIM-23 HAWK : A surface-to-air missile obsolete in U.S. service, which may still be used by a few allies; the launcher can be upgraded to take the Norwegian ground-launched version of the AIM-120 AMRAAM missile
- MPQ-53 : Tracking and launch control radar for the U.S. Army MIM-104 Patriot anti-ballistic and high-altitude anti-aircraft missile
- MPQ-64 : Mobile air search radar, used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, to detect aircraft, cruise missiles, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), for air defense and friendly air deconfliction
- Michael Auslin : Director of Japan Studies at the American Enterprise Institute, and a member of the Committee on the Present Danger; Former Senior Research Fellow, Yale University
- Missile warning receiver : An electronic warfare subsystem that detects the thermal energy, or other signatures, of a missile launch or its flight, in order to take defensive measures
- Operation DESERT STORM : That part of the Gulf War, beginning with the first air strikes at 02:00 local time, 17 January 1991, until the main ground assault into Kuwait, Operation DESERT SABRE
- Patriot (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Precision-guided munition : 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
- Radar : (acronym for "radio detection and ranging") A technique used for detecting and tracking targets, navigation, imagery, and special applications.
- Surface-to-air missile : A guided missile fired from land or water, to destroy aircraft and possibly missiles; naval versions may have a secondary anti-shipping missile capability
- TPY-2 : A long-range, high-altitude X-band phased array radar for use to guide the top layer anti-ballistic missiles (i.e., THAAD) of a theater ballistic missile defense system, cueing for lower-altitude system, and as a component of national missile defense
- Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (missile) : An anti-ballistic missile, developed by the U.S. Army, intended as the high-altitude tier of a layered theater ballistic missile defense system
- The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy : A controversial book by two American academics, suggesting that the relationship between the United States and Israel is dysfunctional, but affected by a loose but politically powerful set of interest groups in both countries
- Theater ballistic missile : A short- to medium- or intermediate-range surface-to-surface missile intended for use within a region rather than between continents, whose speed is less than that of an intercontinental ballistic missile making it an easier ballistic missile defense problem
- 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.
