- Future Combat Systems : An cancelled development program,including a variety of military systems, including armored fighting vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, artillery, precision guided munitions and unmanned aerial vehicles; was an evolutionary step in the restructuring of the United States Army and tailored to the brigade combat team organizational structure but will continue partially in the Brigade Combat Team Modernization
- Surface-to-surface missile : A guided missile launched from the land or water surface of the Earth, aimed at a surface target
- Precision Attack Missile : Raytheon-developed battlefield surface-to-surface missile; 40 km (25 mi) range with large hard-target/anti-armor warhead; fired by Non-Line-of-Sight Launch System in canceled U.S. Army Future Combat Systems and under diminishing consideration for U.S. Navy Littoral Combat Ship; more powerful, expensive, and longer-ranged than competing Griffin missile, a Raytheon-funded development
- Common Tri-Mode Seeker : (CMTS) a missile guidance subsystem that combines thermal imaging, radar and laser guidance, built by Raytheon
- Netfires : Concept including both the Precision Attack Missile and the Loitering Attack Missile with the common Non-Line-of-Sight Launch System launcher, with networked target acquisition, missile targeting, and battle damage assessment; associated with but not strictly part of Future Combat Systems
- Littoral Combat Ship : Lighter than a U.S. destroyer or frigate, (but heavier than a corvette or fast attack craft) relatively low-cost United States Navy warship type, capable of ocean crossings but optimized for coastal operations including mine warfare (MIW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASW).
- 155mm howitzer : Implemented in self-propelled or lightweight towed versions, this howitzer size, with slight variations in caliber, is the world's most common medium artillery type
- Griffin missile : Small air-to-surface missile developed with Raytheon internal funding, for unmanned aerial vehicles and applications where a small area of effect is desired
