DOD Military Terms Dictionary

  The Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms deserves to be called the most comprehensive reference works when it comes to military terms and expressions. This outstanding dictionary supplements general English dictionaries with technical terms and terminology for military and associated use. This DOD dictionary was published in Spring 2001 by the Joint Doctrine Division. The present version was amended through October 2007.

The Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms sets forth standard US military and associated terminology to encompass the joint activity of the Armed Forces of the United States in both US joint and allied joint operations. These military terms constitute approved DOD terminology for general use by all components of the Department of Defense.

Note: an asterisk in parentheses after the term denotes DOD-NATO standardization of terminology.

Term of the day

wartime reserve modes

Characteristics and operating procedures of sensor, communications, navigation aids, threat recognition, weapons, and countermeasures systems that will contribute to military effectiveness if unknown to or misunderstood by opposing commanders before they are used, but could be exploited or neutralized if known in advance. Wartime reserve modes are deliberately held in reserve for wartime or emergency use and seldom, if ever, applied or intercepted prior to such use. Also called WARM.
