Auto-populated based on Special:WhatLinksHere/Anti-submarine warfare. Needs checking by a human.
- AEGIS battle management system : An integrated system of computers, radars, and other systems that provides integrated management of a shipboard suite of strategic strike, anti-surface warfare, ballistic missile defense and anti-air warfare principally using missiles in vertical launch systems; it complements other integrated systems for anti-submarine warfare and naval gunfire support
- Aircraft carrier : A warship designed to launch and recover combat aircraft and aircraft that support military operations
- Alouette (helicopter) : French utility and light military helicopters
- Anti-air warfare : 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.
- 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
- 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
- Battleship : A heavily-armored, warship optimized for fighting other warships using large-caliber guns; certain armor requirements differentiated from cruisers; obsolete by end of World War II.
- C3I-ISR : Command, control, communications and intelligence, combined with intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance
- Carrier strike group : In the U.S. Navy, the group of ships centered around a large aircraft carrier
- Chatham, Massachusetts : A town and port on the southern coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, in the "middle cape" just before the peninsula turns to the north
- Cruiser : While definitions vary with time and doctrine, a large warship capable of acting independently, as a flagship, or a major escort; capabilities include anti-air warfare, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, land attack, and possibly ballistic missile defense
- 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
- Destroyer : While the definition has evolved constantly, it is a multipurpose surface warship, generally less powerful than a cruiser, with capabilities against ship, aircraft, submarine, land, and sometimes ballistic missile targets
- Direction finding : Finding the location of an electromagnetic emitter, either by the crossed bearings from directional antennas from various known points, or by time of arrival or time difference of arrival of the signal at those points
- Falklands War : 1982 war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over the Falkland Islands and their dependencies.
- Fratricide (military) : The killing of one's brother, but in a military context, the killing of one's own forces ("friendly fire").
- Guided missile : A weapon that flies through air or space, under its own power, which adjusts its course to hit its target.
- Kirov-class : Renamed the Admiral Ushakov-class under the Russian Federation, a Soviet class of large missile cruisers, probably the most potent surface warships built since WWII (excluding aircraft carriers)
- Littoral Combat Ship : Lighter than a U.S. destroyer or frigate, (but heavier than a corvette or fast attack craft) relatively low-cost U.S. Navy warship type, capable of ocean crossings but optimized for coastal operations including mine warfare (MIW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASW).
- Naval warfare : The military history of the organized navies of the world from 300 BCE to the present.
- Navy : A military force organized primarily for missions on, under, or above bodies of water
- Ocean escort : A warship with weapons and sensors to defend itself and ships near it, sturdy enough to operate in ocean conditions, but with only enough speed to escort merchant and military support ships, and usually not built to full warship standards of battle damage survivability
- Operations research : A set of quantitative techniques for optimum decisionmaking, often with uncertainty, which were first used to solve military operational problems
- 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
- Precision-guided munition : 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
- Spruance-class : A retired class of U.S. Navy destroyers, built on the same hull as the Burke-class but optimized for land attack and anti-submarine warfare, without the AEGIS battle management system
- Submarine : A ship or boat that can travel underwater
- Surface-to-underwater missile : A means of launching an antisubmarine torpedo from a surface ship, often by an unguided rocket booster, moving it at greater speed and range than possible for a torpedo in the water, and releasing the guided torpedo over the approximate location of the target
- Ticonderoga-class : Modern U.S. Navy cruisers usually serving as carrier or amphibious escorts, but capable of independent action including long-range strike, anti-air/anti-ballistic missile/anti-satellite warfare, naval gunfire support, and antisubmarine warfare.
- 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
- Type 45-class : The latest class of British destroyer, a large multirole ship with very strong anti-air warfare capabilities, with the first vessel on sea trials
- U.S. Navy : The branch of the United States Armed Forces charged with sea operations
- Udaloy-class : Soviet-designed destroyer, principally optimized for anti-submarine warfare, in service with the Russian Navy
- Warship : A ship designed to employ weapons and sensors in direct naval warfare
- World War II, air war : Air operations in the Second World War
- World War II, submarine operations : In the Second World War, [[[submarine]]s came close to cutting all supply to Britain and Japan, and achieved some spectacular warship kills; submarine and antisubmarine warfare were low-profile but critical parts of the war in all ocean theaters of operations
