Auto-populated based on Special:WhatLinksHere/HAVE QUICK II. Needs checking by a human.
- 75th Ranger Regiment : Assigned to the Army Special Operations Command of the United States Special Operations Command, a highly skilled, parachute-qualified light infantry unit that conducts raids in uniform (e.g., seizing airfields or destroying strategic targets), and provides perimeter security during direct action by other special operators
- A-10 Thunderbolt II : A heavily armed close air support and ground attack aircraft, which can loiter over a battlefield and then hit targets with great accuracy, while retaining high survivability against ground fire.
- AC-130 : Heavily armed transport aircraft, based on the C-130 Hercules, used to provide air support to special operations forces.
- AN- : U.S. military nomenclature for electronic equipment, following the Joint Electronics Type Designation System
- ARC-164 : The standard U.S. and NATO UHF radio for military air-to-air and air-to-ground communications, compatible with the HAVE QUICK II electronic protection scheme; it is not a Joint Tactical Radio System device although JTRS units will interoperate with it
- ARC-187 : A multiservice HAVE QUICK II transceiver with JTIDS capability
- Air defense artillery : A combat arms branch of the United States Army, responsible for defending ground forces and the continental United States against aircraft and missile attack
- Army Special Operations Command : A command that trains and prepares U.S. Army special operations personnel, including United States Army Special Forces, and serves as the land forces component of United States Special Operations Command
- Army aviation : Helicopter, light fixed-wing, and unmanned aerial vehicles intended to be under the direct control of, and immediately responsive to, ground commanders
- 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.
- E-3 Sentry : Airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft, equipped with a large radar and a battle staff, which can detect aircraft and control combat.
- F-15E Strike Eagle : A variant of the F-15 Eagle air superiority fighter, which is optimized for all-weather attack on ground targets
- 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
- Frequency agility : The capability of a set of electromagnetic receivers and transmitters to change, rapidly, their operating frequencies, possibly under the control of pseudo-random, network-synchronized frequency selection software
- H-60 helicopter : A family of light transport helicopters used by the U.S. services, including the standard troop carrier UH-60 Blackhawk, naval rescue and surface/subsurface warfare, and the MH-60 special operations variant that is not really a Black Helicopter but instead very, very dark gray
- Joint Tactical Radio System : A wide-ranging replacement of conventional military radio and communications security equipment with software-defined radio
- MC-130 COMBAT TALON : Special operations transport aircraft primarily intended to support ground forces in denied areas, by airdrop or assault landing; secondary capability of helicopter refueling and navigational assistance.
- 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
- OC-135B Open Skies : U.S. aircraft that carry out cooperative, unarmed photoreconnaissance flights over countries participating in the Open Skies Treaty
- PRC-117 : A recent, but prior to the Joint Tactical Radio System, U.S. military tactical software-defined radio family that operates in the full VHF/UHF frequency range, with an internal encryption unit, and compatibility with SINCGARS and HAVE QUICK II
- PRC-119 : A 1990s-vintage manpack tactical radio compatible with the SINCGARS waveform and security system, which is the basic U.S. Army infantry squad radio being replaced with more advanced, flexible units
- PRC-148 : The Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio (MBITR), which covers the HF through VHF spectrum, is the first widely defined military software-defined radio, although it precedes the Joint Tactical Radio System.
- PRC-25 : The basic U.S. military squad tactical radio, along with its slightly upgraded version, the AN/PRC-77, introduced in 1962 and in service for approximately 30 years
- PSC-5 : A man-portable, as well as vehicle and base-mounted, secure VHF/UHF line-of-sight as well as UHF satellite radio, with SINCGARS and HAVE QUICK II compatibility
- Radio : Transmission and reception of information, which can be voice, data or imagery over electromagnetic radiation in free space (i.e., wireless). The information is modulated onto a carrier wave
- Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System : A family of military radios, intended for ground combat and operating in the very high frequency (VHF) part of the electromagnetic spectrum; it uses frequency agility and is otherwise designed to operate in an electronic warfare environment
- Squad tactical radio : The designation, in U.S. and many other militaries, for a backpack radio assigned to squads of 9-13 soldiers, used for tactical coordination over a range of approximately 5 miles/8 kilometers; subsequent generations are more rugged, secure, and more power-efficient
- 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
