aerospace defense - 1. All defensive measures designed to destroy or nullify attacking enemy aircraft and missiles and also negate hostile space systems.

2. An inclusive term encompassing air defense, ballistic missile defense, and space defense. See also air defense; space defense. (Joint Pub 1-02)

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 which that mitigate the effectiveness of targeting and delivery systems through EW against remote or onboard guidance systems.

air defense - All defensive measures designed to destroy attacking enemy aircraft or missiles in the Earth’'s envelope of atmosphere, or to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of such attack. See also active air defense; aerospace defense; passive air defense. (Joint Pub 1-02)

anti-radiation missile – A missile which homes passively on a radiation source. See also guided missile. (Joint Pub 1-02)

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 defense – The integration of joint force capabilities to destroy enemy theater

defense missiles in flight or prior to launch or to otherwise disrupt the enemy’s theater missile operations through an appropriate mix of mutually supportive passive missile defense; active missile defense; attack operations; and supporting command, control communications, computers, and intelligencC4Ie measures. Enemy theater missiles are those that are aimed at targets outside the continental United StatesCONUS. 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 which 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.

space defense - All defensive measures designed to destroy attacking enemy vehicles (including missiles) while in space, or to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of such attack. See also aerospace defense. (Joint Pub 1-02)

theater missile - A missile, which may be a ballistic missileBM, a cruise missileCM, or an air-to-surface missileASM (not including short-range, non-nuclear, direct fire missiles, bombs, or rockets such as Maverick or wire-guided missiles), whose target is within a given theater of operation. See also joint theater missile defense. (Joint Pub 1-02)
