Parent topics

  • Anti-air warfare [r]: In the context of naval warfare, the mission of defending against aircraft and missiles, from platforms under naval command and control, possibly in coordination with other services and possibly defending land as well as sea areas. [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]
  • Radar [r]: (acronym for "radio detection and ranging") A technique used for detecting and tracking targets, navigation, imagery, and special applications. [e]
    • Diffraction [r]: A physical phenomenon that causes waves to bend around corners [e]
    • Reflection [r]: Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Reflection (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
    • Absorption [r]: An identity linking a pair of binary operations. [e]
    • Low probability of intercept [r]: A set of techniques to minimize the probability of hostile interception of a radio or radar signal [e]
  • Electro-optical tracking [r]: The use of electronics, possibly in combination with mechanical positioning systems, to aim an optical system at a source of infrared, visible, or ultraviolet light, and follow it for purposes of observation or weapons guidance [e]
  • Infrared guidance [r]: Missile or other guidance that locks onto an infrared energy source, and adjusts its flight controls to keep the source in the center of its course [e]

Subtopics

Sensors and counter-sensors

  • Bistatic [r]: A detection system which comprises a transmitter and receiver which are separated by a distance that is comparable to the expected target distance. [e]
  • Infrared countermeasures [r]: Equipment and flying techniques that can break the lock of a heat-seeking missile on a target aircraft. [e]
  • Measurement and signature intelligence [r]: A variety of intelligence gathering disciplines complementary to the technical "mainstream" of imagery intelligence and signals intelligence. [e]
    • Radar MASINT [r]: The use of radar signals to obtain information beyond imaging of a target or its simple position, such as motion, reflectivity and surface characteristics, etc.; this technical information may be combined with imaging radar or traditional tracking radar [e]
  • Multistatic [r]: Radar, sonar, or other echolocation systems with more than two transmitting and two receiving antennas; fault-tolerant and resistant to stealth and electronic warfare [e]
