- AGM-65 Maverick : Short-range air-to-surface missile with multiple guidance and warhead options, certified for 25 past and present aircraft
- AGM-86 ALCM : A long-range cruise missile that can be delivered anywhere in the world from U.S. bases, employing blast or precision penetrating warheads
- APG-78 : A U.S. Army millimeter wave radar system shared among the Longbow versions of the AH-64 Apache heavy attack helicopter, AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, and the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior scout helicopter
- Air-to-surface missile : Launched from an fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter, missiles of this category have a wide variety of ranges, sensors, autonomy vs. man-in-the-loop control, warheads, and need for battle damage assessment
- 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-tank missile : A air-to-surface or surface-to-surface missile, optimized to defeat the most heavily armored tanks by such measures as attacking the thinnest armor, or using dual warheads to defeat reactive armor
- Attack helicopter : A helicopter equipped with built-in heavy weapons, which has no standard cargo capacity and is used as a "flying tank" in close air support or battlefield air interdiction.
- Battlefield air interdiction : Air warfare intended to support ground troops, not by direct firepower but interfering with enemy supplies, reinforcements and communications
- Bomber aircraft : Airplanes optimized to deliver weapons to surface targets, rather than to fight other airplanes.
- EF-18 Growler : The U.S. Navy replacement for the EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft
- 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.
- Guided missile : A weapon that flies through air or space, under its own power, which adjusts its course to hit its target.
- Intelligence collection ontology : The use of information technology and knowledge management to help map intelligence requests to the best available collection techniques
- Iraq War, major combat phase : That part of the Iraq War involving the initial invasion by large-scale ground forces
- MIM-104 Patriot : Missile originally developed for medium-to-high altitude aircraft interception (SAM) use, which, while retaining that capability, is now optimized as an anti-ballistic missile (ABM) for relatively small but critical areas. The SAM versions have explosive warheads but the ABM is hit-to-kill.
- 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
- Maritime patrol aircraft : Very long range, usually land-based, aircraft optimized for sea surveillance, originally principally for anti-submarine warfare but often with anti-surface warfare capabilities; newer types also have land and littoral surveillance roles
- 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
- Raduga KSR-5 : A large, high-altitude, supersonic Russian air-to-surface missile, with a conventional or nuclear warhead, typically used against land or sea radar, or against ships
- Remote sensing : The art and science of obtaining information about Earth (or, for that matter, other planets) features from measurements made at a distance, by instruments that detect reflected or transmitted energy in the electromagnetic spectrum
- SS-1 SCUD : A Soviet-designed short range and inaccurate ballistic missile, a near-copy of the Second World War V-2 missile, that was widely exported, copied, employed as a base for new development, and used in combat by Iraq
- Su-25 : Heavily armed and armored Russian close air support aircraft, NATO designation FROGFOOT, similar to the U.S. A-10, and the descendant of the Second World War Il-2 Stormovik
- Surface-to-surface missile : A guided missile launched from the land or water surface of the Earth, aimed at a surface target
- United States Air Force : One of the uniformed services of the United States, with principal responsibility for land-based long-range and high-performance aircraft, as well as land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles
- Warhead : That part of a military weapon, which actively moves to strike a target, that causes the desired destructive effect on the target
