- Abc (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Advanced Extremely High Frequency (satellite) : A system of survivable, high-speed military communications satellites going into service, developed by the U.S. Air Force with British, Canadian and Dutch participation
- Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System : A U.S. Army and Marine artillery fire control system that cooperates with Navy and Air Force fire control systems, as well as British, French, Italian and German artillery systems.
- Armored fighting vehicle : A military vehicle that is both protected against blast and fragments, and either has offensive weapons or directly supports combat by vehicles with offensive weapons
- Asynchronous Transfer Mode : A technology for the transfer of fixed-length "cells" of digital information through specialized cell switches built on top of optical transmission networks; increasingly obsolescent
- Battle Command and Sustainment Support System : A set of application programs that provides the logistics functions of the U.S. Army Battle Command System, which, in turn, is part of the Global Information Grid; also used by the U.S. Marine Corps
- 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
- C3I-ISR : Command, control, communications and intelligence, combined with intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance
- Cellular telephony : A set of techniques that let many low-powered portable telephones connect to the fixed network, often exchanging data and images as well as voice
- Command and control : The combination of lawful authority over people and resources, coupled with the methods of directing their execution of missions and tasks directed at goals set by that authority
- Corps : The highest-level military headquarters that has an operational art mission, as opposed to tactical and support/administrative role; normally commanded by a major general or lieutenant general
- Defense Information Systems Network : The shared Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) terrestrial digital communications system for the U.S. military, onto which are layered routed networks such as NIPRNET, SIPRNET and JWICS
- Echelons above corps : Military resources under the control of a headquarters above the level of the highest tactical organization (i.e., a corps), usually a theater or national level of command; the higher headquarters may delegate tactical control of them to subordinate units, or control them directly (e.g., reconnaissance satellites, elite special operations forces)
- 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
- Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below : A U.S. Army system of pocket- and laptop-sized, user-friendly networked computers, for command and control from the individual soldier up to the brigade combat team
- Forward Area Air Defense : A U.S. military command and control system for managing air defense, which includes both artillery/air deconfliction and counter-rocket, artillery and mortar missions, near the main battle line, typically under brigade control
- Future Combat Systems : An cancelled development program,including a variety of military systems, including armored fighting vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, artillery, precision guided munitions and unmanned aerial vehicles; was an evolutionary step in the restructuring of the United States Army and tailored to the brigade combat team organizational structure but will continue partially in the Brigade Combat Team Modernization
- GRC-245 : A Canadian-developed, Enhanced High Capacity Line-of-Sight (HCLOS) radio, used in the U.S. Army Warfighter Information Network–Tactical and by a number of countries; it provides up to 34 Mbps of digital information transfer compatible with the Joint Tactical Radio System architecture
- Global Broadcast Service : A U.S. military communications satellite system, used for the one-way distribution of large files and real-time video (originally from MQ-1 Predator unmanned aerial vehicles in Bosnia), over Internet Protocol, from a small number of geographic and theater uplinks to several hundred receiving stations
- Global Information Grid : The overall computing and communications architecture and systems interconnecting the U.S. Department of Defense military and civilian organizations, other government agencies, and allied nations; information is at the strategic/theater and operational, not tactical levels
- Infantry fighting vehicle : A vehicle intended to carry infantry onto a battlefield, sometimes allowing them to fight from inside and always to dismount and fight on foot; it accompanies dismounts and provides heavier fire support than they can carry
- Joint Network Node : A transportable communications routing and circuit-switching node, designed as a transition into the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical
- Joint Tactical Information Distribution System : The primary communications system used for sharing tactical information internally, and among NATO, Australia, and other U.S. allies
- M2 Bradley (armored fighting vehicle) : A family of armored fighting vehicles, with roles including infantry fighting vehicle, scouting, forward observer, and other functions in a platform sufficiently survivable to accompany the M1 Abrams tank, although needing more protection
- Mobile (engineering) : In the context of communications and electronics, especially military, a device or system that can be operate "on the move" (OTM) from a field-deployable vehicle or aircraft, but is not permanently mounted in its carrying vehicle
- Mobile Subscriber Equipment : End user telephones and data access devices, at levels below division, by which U.S. military units connected to corps, echelons above corps, and national networks under the obsolescent TRI-TAC digital telephony architecture
- NIPRNET : The common user network intended to carry U.S. military "sensitive but unclassified" traffic for military personnel, government employees, military contractors, and approved allies
- Naval infantry : Personnel assigned to naval ships, who are qualified to engage in combat using individual weapons, against enemy personnel on land or on ships that were boarded
- Restructuring of the United States Army : A major doctrinal and organization redesign of the United States Army, with its chief feature being moving from the division to the Brigade Combat Team and new supporting brigade structures as the basic Unit of Action
- TRC-190 : A High Capacity Line of Sight (HCLOS) microwave radio, used with the Joint Network Node of the U.S. Army to provide high-speed connectivity between nodes.
- TRI-TAC : An obsolescent U.S. military tactical communications architecture of the 1980s, providing analog and digital telephone and low-speed data services
- TTC-56 : A highly transportable U.S. Army digital voice and data tactical switching system, using routing and circuit switching technology
- Transportable : In the context of engineering, communications and electronics, especially military, a device or system that can be can be moved quickly by truck, cargo aircraft, or other field vehicle, but is not mobile (i.e., cannot operate "on the move" (OTM))
- Warfighter Information Network–Tactical : Deployed in several increments of increasing capability, this is the partially deplyed tactical communications system for the U.S. Army, which have far more bandwidth and is becoming a mobile "on the move" self-organizing network; sometimes called the "tactical internet" Through the Army Battle Command System, it interfaces to the Global Information Grid.
