- 9-11 Conspiracy Theories : Alternative theories as to the conspiracy that led to the attacks of 9-11.
- AH-1 Cobra : The first purpose-built U.S. attack helicopter, introduced by the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War; the U.S. Marine Corps still operates a much-modified version
- Acoustic energy : Energy propagated as pressure waves, through elastic media such as air or water. Hearing is the detection of acoustic energy within the frequency range of the animal detecting the energy
- Air Traffic Control : A system for managing the safe operation of large numbers of aircraft in shared airspace, day or night, and in almost all weather, keeping the aircraft managed by positive control from a network of interconnected ground stations
- Aircraft carrier : A warship designed to launch and recover combat aircraft and aircraft that support military operations
- 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
- Automatic Identification System : A system, aboard ships and boats, that combines marine radio transmitters and receivers, Global Navigation Satellite System receivers, and computer control into a self-organizing, mobile network in which vessels are inform nearby traffic, potential collision hazards, and navigational information
- Commercial fishing : The harvesting of edible marine life on a commercial basis, usually using purpose-built vessels and equipment
- Department of National Defence (Canada) : The Canadian cabinet department responsible for the uniformed Canadian Forces, departmental agencies, and several organizations (e.g., search and rescue) that may or may not be part of the regular military of some other nations.
- Digital selective calling : A method to address specific marine radios or groups of vessels, and to send a distress signal, including the vessel's location if the radio is connected to a GPS receiver
- Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon : Intended for search and rescue of ships and boats, this is a beacon that will float free of a sinking vessel, and broadcast a position report, preferably with GPS, to a worldwide cluster of monitoring satellites.
- F-18 Hornet : A relatively lightweight carrier-capable multirole fighter, developed by the United States Navy and used by several nations, including Canada, in land-based roles; a fourth-generation fighter gradually being replaced by the F-18E/F Super Hornet, and then the F-35.
- 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-4 Phantom II : An extremely successful third-generation fighter, the first effective multirole fighter, which, even after its replacement as a first-line fighter, continued in reconnaissance and suppression of enemy air defense roles well into the 1990s.
- Fisheries monitoring surveillance and control : The broadening of traditional enforcing national rules over fishing, to the support of the broader problem of fisheries management, from the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.
- Global Maritime Distress and Safety System : Mandated by the Safety of Life at Sea convention of the International Maritime Organization system of digital radio and other systems for ships to receive alerts and signal search and rescue organizations when they are in distress.
- Identification friend or foe : Military electronic systems that send a secure "don't kill me" signal to friendly forces, to avoid fratricide, usually based on encrypted interaction with a transponder
- International Maritime Organization : The United Nations agency responsible for avoiding pollution from ships, and implementing the Safety of Life at Sea convention
- International law : The formal conduct of interactions between nation-states, both at the national level and on behalf of their citizens; generally accepted as first formalized by Hugo Grotius.
- MH-53 Pave Low : United States Air Force special operations helicopter that can fly at night, at extremely low altiude, and in most weather. Its main missions are delivering and retrieving special operations personnel; replaced by the CV-22
- MQ-1 Predator : A medium-altitude, long-endurance, unmanned aerial vehicle used for armed reconnaissance by the Central Intelligence Agency, and for reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition at the level of Unified Combatant Commands; it will be replaced by its larger descendant, the MQ-9 Reaper
- Marine navigation : A term including the literal process of navigation, or finding position and course, but of the overall process of safe operation of a water vessel, such as avoiding collisions
- Maritime and Coastguard Agency : Formerly UK Coastguard, the part of the UK Department of Transport responsible for marine safety
- North American Air Defense Command : The joint Canada-U.S. military organization responsible for aerospace threat warning and defense for North America
- SOS : Conventional description used for the Morse code international distress signal (· · · — — — · · ·).
- Safety and survivability of naval vessels : Beyond the rules of the Safety of Life at Sea convention, protective measures, for naval vessels, against their own systems as well as enemy fire
- Search and rescue transponder : 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
- Search and rescue : 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
- Self-organizing network : A set of cooperating elements that announce themselves, learn of other nodes of interest, and build interconnections, without the need for central control or manual administration.
- South China Sea : A part of the Pacific Ocean surrounded by nations of Southeast Asia and East Asia, important for navigation but also for small islands over which resource and sovereignty disputes exist
- Strait of Malacca : One of the world's busiest waterways, passing Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand, where piracy has been a major problem
- Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System : A self-organizing (i.e., not dependent on central controllers) system of computers and radios, installed in aircraft, which become aware of nearby airplanes and both warn of potential collisions and give each airplane an appropriate evasive maneuver
- 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 Coast Guard : A uniformed service of the United States, with diverse maritime safety, search and rescue, law enforcement, and military responsibilities
- Vessel monitoring system : System used in commercial fishing to allow environmental and fisheries regulatory organizations to monitor, minimally, the position, time at a position, and course and speed of fishing vessels.
