active air defense Direct defensive action taken to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of hostile air action. It includes such measures as the use of aircraft, air defense weapons, weapons not used primarily in an air defense role, and electronic warfare. See also air defense. (Joint Pub 1-02)

active defense Operations that protect selected assets and forces from attack by destroying TM airborne launch platforms and/or TMs in flight. Active defense also includes those actions that mitigate the effectiveness of targeting and delivery systems through EW against remote or onboard guidance systems.

attack operations Offensive actions intended to destroy and disrupt enemy TM capabilities before, during, and after launch. The objective of these operations is to prevent the launch of TMs by attacking each element of the overall system, including such actions as destroying launch platforms, RSTA platforms, C2 nodes, and missile stocks and infrastructure.

BMC4I The BMC4I system links passive defense, active defense, and attack operations to provide timely assessment of the threat, to include IPB; rapid dissemination of tactical warning; and poststrike assessment to the appropriate TMD element. For each operational element, the BMC4I system must provide rapid communications among intelligence assets, and fusion and decision-making facilities, warning systems, and weapon systems, to include a capability for rapid coordination with supporting combatant commanders.

joint theater missile The integration of joint force capabilities to destroy enemy

defense theater missiles in flight or prior to launch or to otherwise disrupt the enemyís theater missile operations through an appropriate mix of mutually supportive passive missile defense; active missile defense; attack operations; and supporting C4I measures. Enemy theater missiles are those that are aimed at targets outside CONUS. Also called JTMD. (Joint Pub 1-02)

passive air defense All measures, other than active air defense, taken to minimize the effectiveness of hostile air action. These measures include deception, dispersion, and the use of protective construction. See also air defense. (Joint Pub 1-02)

passive defense Operations that provide essential individual and collective protection for friendly forces, population centers, and critical assets. The principal measures used to accomplish passive defense are tactical warning, reducing targeting effectiveness, reducing vulnerability, and recovery and reconstitution.
