Abstract:

The purpose of this glossary is to facilitate a common language within the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization BMDO and the ballistic missile defense community. This glossary supplements other existing Department of Defense DoD publications. This glossary is not an official DoD publication it is limited to terminology that relates to ballistic missile defense. A number of computer, software, and engineering terms are included, especially those applicable to BMD. In addition, numerous acquisition terms are included in light of BMDOs ongoing transition to a more acquisition oriented agency. Many entries are taken from the DoD 5000-series of directives, the DoD program objective memorandums, the Joint Staff Glossary Joint Pub 1-02, and the Defense Systems Management College Glossary. A number of outdated or seldom-used terms are also included for historical relevance, though obsolete terms are denoted. MM
