- Aerospace : With the development of operations extending beyond the earth's atmosphere, a more general term than air warfare
- 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
- AIM-120 AMRAAM : A high-performance. beyond-visual-range, air-to-air missile with inertial midcourse guidance and active radar terminal guidane, developed by the U.S. and used on the aircraft of a number of countries, as well as in surface-to-air missile variants
- ALE-50 : An expendable, actively transmitting radar decoy pod that is towed behind the aircraft it protects
- 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
- ALR-69 : A radar warning receiver that characterizes the threat beyond simple warning; of early 2000s vintage on aircraft including the A-10 Thunderbolt II, MC-130 COMBAT TALON, MH-53 PAVE LOW, F-16 Fighting Falcon and C-130 Hercules
- APG-70 : An evolutionary branch, which added ground mapping as well as air-to-air tracking & fire control, of the AN/APG-63 radar of the F-15 Eagle air superiority fighter. It was introduced for the F-15E Strike Eagle fighter-bomber variant, and its function will reconverge into the AN/APG-63 series as V(4).
- 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-228 : The first electro-optical pod, for air-to-air and air-to-ground targeting as well as navigation, which operates in the medium-wave infrared spectrum
- Airborne Common Sensor : A manned U.S. Army battlefield signals intelligence and imaging radar aircraft, to use a business jet or turboprop airframe, which will replace the Airborne Reconnaissance Low and RC-12 GUARDRAIL aircraft, and complement unmanned aerial vehicle and other battlefield sensors.
- BGM-71 TOW : A heavy antitank missile, launched from ground or helicopter platforms; all but the recent air-launched version trail a thin wire through which they receive man-in-the-loop guidance commands
- Common Tri-Mode Seeker : (CMTS) a missile guidance subsystem that combines thermal imaging, radar and laser guidance, built by Raytheon
- Elinor Smith : (1911) a pioneering American aviatrix, once known as "The Flying Flapper of Freeport". She was the first woman test pilot for both Fairchild and Bellanca.
- Enhanced Position Location Reporting System : A portable or vehicle-mounted U.S. Army device that transmits friendly force positions for command and control, fires with precision-guided munitions, and logistical support
- FGM-148 Javelin : A shoulder-fired, "fire and forget" missile using thermal viewing in the control unit and seeker, the missile has selectable pop-up anti-tank and direct fire (i.e., against buildings) flight modes
- FIM-92 Stinger : A second-generation United States Army surface-to-air missile that can be fired from a soldier's shoulder, from vehicle-mounted launchers, and, in an air-to-air missile configuration, from attack helicopters. Uses combined infrared-ultraviolet guidance to resist countermeasures.
- Icebreaker Nathaniel Palmer : An American Research Vessel.
- John Deutch : A physical chemist, currently Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Distinguished Fellow at the Brookings Institution; Aspen Strategy Group, Aspen Institute; past Director of Central Intelligence and U.S. Secretary of Defense
- 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
- M109 howitzer : A family of self-propelled 155mm howitzers developed by the U.S. Army
- 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
- RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile : A joint U.S.-German system for final defense against supersonic, sea-skimming anti-shipping missiles such as the Russian Moskit series, generically designated by NATO as SS-N-22 SUNBURN
- RIM-156 Standard SM-2 : Intended to be launched from the vertical launch system of AEGIS battle management system equipment ships, this is principally a long-range surface-to-air missile using semi-active radar homing with no over-the-horizon capability; it can accept midcourse guidance for its secondar anti-shipping missile capability and thus engage over-the-horizon targets
- RIM-161 Standard SM-3 : Theater anti-ballistic (i.e., midcourse and terminal phases) and anti-satellite missile, using hit-to-kill, launched from ships equipped with the AN/SPY-2 radar and AEGIS battle management system.
- RIM-162 ESSM : In U.S. Navy service, a short-to-medium range surface-to-air missile of which four will fit in a vertical launch system cell; derived from the AIM-7 Sparrow air-to-air missile
- SIGINT aircraft-based platforms : An aircraft or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that carries signals intelligence sensors
- SPS-64 : A Raytheon commercial and military system of navigation radar; while on U.S. Navy ships including the Burke-class and Ticonderoga-class, it is independent of the AEGIS battle management system
- San Antonio-class : Used in amphibious warfare, a class of Landing Platform Dock ships of the United States Navy, with some in commission and some under construction; they displace 24,900 tons and will replace the Austin-class (LPD-4)
- 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
- Blue Force Tracker : A U.S. military command and control system, including soldier- and vehicle-level workstations, originally designed for battalion and brigade, but, with network improvements, capable of reaching to higher headquarters and rear areas
