PREFACE

This glossary is compiled by the direction of the Military Committee and with the approval of the NATO Council.

Its purpose is to standardize general terminology with a specific military meaning; (ii) specialist terminology that needs to be widely understood throughout NATO, as well as (iii) terms that are not adequately defined in the NATO Terminology Programme (NTP)'s reference dictionaries1, thus promoting mutual understanding and strengthening the Alliance's defence capabilities.

The definitions contained herein do not establish or modify NATO policy and doctrine, but help to express them more clearly.

The glossary is available in electronic form in the two official languages of NATO, English and French. These versions are updated and made available annually through the Internet and the NATO extranet.

In accordance with STANAG 3680 and PO(2015)0193, NATO Terminology Directive, the terms and definitions contained herein have been approved by all NATO nations.

The glossary is divided into four main parts:

Part 1. Organization and Procedures. Part 2.

Part 2. NATO Agreed terms and definitions of military significance in English. The corresponding French preferred terms are shown immediately following the English entry term e.g., nominal weapon / arme de puissance nominale.

Part 3. NATO Agreed terms and definitions of military significance in French. The corresponding English preferred terms are shown immediately following the French entry term e.g. arme de puissance nominale / nominal weapon.

7. Proposals for new terms and definitions or changes to or deletion of existing terms and definitions are to be made in accordance with PO(2015)0193, NATO Terminology Directive and C-M(2007)0023, Guidance for the Development and Publication of NATO Terminology and using a terminology proposal form, which can be downloaded from the NSO's protected Internet site.
