- Anti-submarine warfare : (ASW) In the context of naval warfare, the mission of attacking underwater vessels, from platforms under naval command and control.
- Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance : The synchronization of information collection and analysis, variously to gain strategic understanding, to detect anomalies, or to actively probe for information

- P-3 Orion : Land-based maritime patrol aircraft designed for the U.S. Navy; enhanced for littoral and land surveillance
- P-8 Poseidon : New maritime patrol aircraft, built on a Boeing 737 airframe for the United States Navy
- Tu-142 : Add brief definition or description
- P-2 Neptune : Add brief definition or description
- B-24 Liberator (bomber) : A U.S. designed heavy bomber, of the Second World War, with moderate payload and defenses but extremely long range; valued as an anti-submarine warfare and maritime patrol aircraft
- Air-to-surface missile : Launched from an fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter, missiles of this category have a wide variety of ranges, sensors, autonomy vs. man-in-the-loop control, warheads, and need for battle damage assessment
- Anti-shipping missile : An air, surface (sea or land), or submarine-launched missile that can track and intercept a maneuvering ship target against the background of moving water
- Depth charge : Early antisubmarine weapons consisting of a large explosive charge and a fuze that was set for a given depth; free-falling and formed a barrage with no guidance; later models had streamlined cases for faster sinking
- Gravity bomb : A bomb with no supplemental propulsion, whose trajectory is determined by initial velocity and gravity, or by the action of aerodynamic control surfaces.
- Guided bomb : An unpowered, aircraft delivered weapon, which adjusts its course using aerodynamic control surfaces, and is controlled by a human operator or on-board autonomous guidance
- Torpedo : A naval weapon that travels underwater, using its own propulsion, to attack its target, minimally with onboard mechanisms to keep it on a straight course. Modern torpedoes are underwater guided missiles that can track their target and adjust their course to hit it
- Magnetic anomaly detection : (MAD) A technique for locating submerged submarines from antisubmarine warfare helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft; short-range and used for final localization, complementing sonar, before weapons release
- Sonobuoy : Air-dropped, expendable sensors for anti-submarine warfare
- Littoral Surveillance Radar System : An active electronically scanned array (AESA) surveillance radar, currently used on maritime patrol aircraft also used in littoral (military) and overland operation; the still highly classified system will go onto next-generation surveillance aircraft and provide targeting information to precision-guided munitions
- AAR-60 : Made by European EADS, a multiple-target-capable missile detector used on the helicopters and maritime patrol aircraft of a number of nations, including Australia, France, Germany, India and South Korea
- 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-213 : A Danish Air Force-designed electronics countermeasures suite controller used on aircraft of many countries
