    CHAPTER 1

    GENERAL

    101. PURPOSE a. The purpose of this publication is to list and define terms essential to:

    (1) Effective communication between Allied operational/staff personnel.

    (2) Enhance the interoperability of Allied military communications and electronic warfare systems.

    (3) Provide a generally acceptable definition of common day-to-day terms used by communications electronic warfare operational staffs in their requirements for Allied networks.

    (4) Provide the primary source reference for communication-electronic and electronic warfare terminology common within Allied communication Publications (ACPs) and supplements thereto.

    b. When terms are employed in ACPs and supplements which are not defined in this publication, they must be defined in the beginning of that publication.

    102. SCOPE a. The terms listed in this publication are in no way exhaustive. Use may

    frequently have to be made of terms not defined herein. For example, Federal Standard 1037, Glossary of Telecommunication Terms, used by the United States and Allies.

    b. When use is made, during the preparation of orders, letters, messages, of communications-electronics or electronic warfare terms not defined in this publication, care must be taken to ensure that their exact meaning will be clearly understood by all recipients.

    103. PRESENTATION a. All terms are listed in alphabetical order (based on the primary word in the

    term) irrespective of subject to facilitate easy reference. Additional information regarding the application or restricted use of term is only provided where ambiguity might otherwise occur.

    b. Spaces have been left between each term to facilitate pen and ink insertion of additional terms and definitions when authorized by an appropriate change.
