Parent topics

  • Combat search and rescue [r]: The location and rescue of military and civilian personnel in hostile areas, such that a military operation is necessary to retrieve them [e]}
  • Search and rescue [r]: The location of those in distress from natural, accidental, or hostile causes; on-scene medical stabilization and extrication; evacuation to treatment or other safe facilities [e]

Subtopics

  • Naval guns and gunnery [r]: Artillery weapons on ships, and techniques and devices for aiming them. [e]
  • Mine (naval warfare) [r]: A naval explosive weapon that waits passively for a target to come into its range, and then detonates or releases a mobile weapon once its sensors detect an appropriate target [e]
  • Torpedo [r]: 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 [e]

Incidents

Other related topics

  • Anti-shipping missile [r]: 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 [e]
  • Anti-surface warfare [r]: (ASuW) In the context of naval warfare, the mission of attacking surface vessels, from small boats to supertankers and aircraft carriers, from platforms under naval command and control [e]
  • Electronic warfare [r]: A subset of information operations that deals with the use of electromagnetic or kinetic means to degrade an enemy's military electronics systems, to be able to operate one's own electronics in the face of enemy attacks, and to evade those attacks through protection or deception [e]
  • Explosives [r]: Explosive agent; a compound or mixture susceptible of a rapid chemical reaction, as gunpowder, or nitroglycerin. [e]
  • Firefighting [r]: The act of extinguishing dangerous fires. [e]
  • Insensitive high explosives [r]: Explosives, principally for military use, which have an extremely low probability of detonating accidentally or other than as intended in a specific application; not easily converted to improvised explosive devices, will not detonate when engulfed in fire, and, when used in the high explosive initator of a nuclear weapon, unable to trigger fission unless precisely triggered [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]
  • Radar [r]: (acronym for "radio detection and ranging") A technique used for detecting and tracking targets, navigation, imagery, and special applications. [e]
  • Radio [r]: Transmission and reception of information, which can be voice, data or imagery over electromagnetic radiation in free space (i.e., wireless). The information is modulated onto a carrier wave [e]
  • Safety of Life at Sea [r]: International convention defining safety requirements for ships [e]
  • Satellite orbits [r]: The path of a celestial body or an artificial satellite as it revolves around another body. [e]
  • Search and rescue transponder [r]: A device used by personnel in need of rescue, which assists in the final part of the search by interacting with search radar and guiding the rescuers to the victim [e]
