- Artillery : Crew-served military devices for propelling payloads over distance
- Guided missile : A weapon that flies through air or space, under its own power, which adjusts its course to hit its target.
- Ballistic missile : A guided missile which, once its engines stop firing, follows a generally parabolic path to its target, defined by momentum, aerodynamic resistance, and gravity
- 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
- Joint Direct Attack Munition : An add-on guidance kit that converts a standard Mark 8x "dumb bomb", or ballistic equivalent, into a precision-guided munition, using inertial navigation enhanced with GPS satellite navigation
- AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon : A U.S. precision-guided munition, originally an unpowered guided bomb with much greater gliding range than the cheaper Joint Direct Attack Munition; powered variants with more extensive capabilities are in development
- BGM-109 Tomahawk : A U.S.-designed cruise missile, launched from vertical launch systems on ships and submarines, against land targets
- LGM-30 Minuteman : In the Minuteman III version, the only operational US land-based intercontinental ballistic missile, fired from ultrahardened underground silos
- Cruise missile : A guided missile that uses aerodynamic forces, as well as active jet or rocket propulsion, to stay airborne and to adjust its course.
- Fire and forget : A precision-guided munition that needs no guidance information from its launching platform once released
- Global Navigation Satellite System : A system which allows small electronic devices to determine their location (Longitude, Latitude, and Altitude) as well as time with an accuracy of up to a few centimetres using time signals transmitted along a line of sight by radio from satellites.
- Geospatial intelligence : Information derived from combining images, from a variety of sources, with geographical locations, resolving conflicts of coordinates and different imaging techniques, and analyzing the results
- Inertial navigation : Navigation method that does not depend on external references, but computes the present position by sensing the movement of the navigating platform from a precisely known starting point in space, using accelerometers to sense position changes from a reference provided by gyroscopes
- Go-onto-target : A guidance paradigm in which the sensor follows a potentially moving signal from the target, rather than going to a set of predefined geographic coordinates
- Swarming (military) : A method of military attacking using multiple attack forces against an opponent, which act in an autonomous but synchronized manner, with real-time communications for their coordination
