Type 88 Surface-to-Ship Missile
The TYPE 88 SURFACE-TO-SHIP MISSILE (88式地対艦誘導弾, SSM-1) is a truck-mounted anti-ship missile developed by Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in the late 1980s. It is a land-based version of the air-launched Type 80 (ASM-1) missile ; in turn it was developed into the ship-launched Type 90 (SSM-1B) missile . The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force bought 54 transporter erector launchers , each carrying six Type 88 missiles, for use as coastal batteries . With a range of 180 km (97 nmi), high subsonic speed and 225 kg (496 lb) warhead, it is similar to the US Harpoon missile. In 2015, an upgrade of the Type 88 became operational called the Type 12 . The Type 12 features INS with mid-course GPS

guidance and better precision due to enhanced TERCOM and target discrimination capabilities

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

TERCOM
TERRAIN CONTOUR MATCHING, or TERCOM, is a navigation system used primarily by cruise missiles . It uses a pre-recorded contour map of the terrain that is compared with measurements made during flight by an on-board radar altimeter . A TERCOM system considerably increases the accuracy of a missile compared with inertial navigation systems (INS). The increased accuracy allows a TERCOM-equipped missile to fly closer to obstacles and generally lower altitudes, making it harder to detect by ground radar

Vehicle
A VEHICLE (from Latin : vehiculum ) is a mobile machine that transports people or cargo . Typical vehicles include wagons , bicycles , motor vehicles (motorcycles , trucks , buses ), railed vehicles (trains , trams ), watercraft (ships , boats ), aircraft and spacecraft . Land vehicles are classified broadly by what is used to apply steering and drive forces against the ground: wheeled , tracked , railed or skied . ISO 3833-1977 is the standard, also internationally used in legislation, for road vehicles types, terms and definitions

Transporter Erector Launcher
A TRANSPORTER ERECTOR LAUNCHER (TEL) is a missile vehicle with an integrated prime mover that can carry, elevate to firing position and launch one or more missiles . Such vehicles exist for both surface-to-air missiles and surface-to-surface missiles . Early such missiles were launched from fixed sites and had to be loaded onto trucks for transport, making them more vulnerable to attack since once they were spotted by the enemy they could not easily be relocated, and if they were it often took hours or even days to prepare them for launch once they reached their new site. A TRANSPORTER ERECTOR LAUNCHER AND RADAR (TELAR) is the same as a TEL but also incorporates part or all of the radar system necessary for firing the surface-to-air missile (s). Such vehicles have the capability of being autonomous, greatly enhancing their effectiveness. With this type of system each vehicle can fight regardless of the state or presence of support vehicles

Inertial Guidance
An INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM (INS) is a navigation aid that uses a computer , motion sensors (accelerometers ) and rotation sensors (gyroscopes ) to continuously calculate via dead reckoning the position, orientation, and velocity (direction and speed of movement) of a moving object without the need for external references. It is used on vehicles such as ships , aircraft , submarines , guided missiles , and spacecraft . Other terms used to refer to inertial navigation systems or closely related devices include INERTIAL GUIDANCE SYSTEM, INERTIAL INSTRUMENT, inertial measurement units (IMU) and many other variations. Older INS systems generally used an inertial platform as their mounting point to the vehicle, and the terms are sometimes considered synonymous

Turbojet
The TURBOJET is an airbreathing jet engine , usually used in aircraft. It consists of a gas turbine with a propelling nozzle . The gas turbine has an air inlet, a compressor, a combustion chamber, and a turbine (that drives the compressor). The compressed air from the compressor is heated by the fuel in the combustion chamber and then allowed to expand through the turbine. The turbine exhaust is then expanded in the propelling nozzle where it is accelerated to high speed to provide thrust. Two engineers, Frank Whittle
Frank Whittle
in the United Kingdom and Hans von Ohain in Germany
Germany
, developed the concept independently into practical engines during the late 1930s. Turbojets have been replaced in slower aircraft by turboprops because they have better range-specific fuel consumption . At medium speeds, where the propeller is no longer efficient, turboprops have been replaced by turbofans

Mitsubishi ATD-X
The MITSUBISHI X-2 SHINSHIN (formerly the ATD-X) is a Japanese experimental aircraft for testing advanced stealth fighter aircraft technologies. It is being developed by the Japanese Ministry of Defense Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI) for research purposes. The main contractor of the project is Mitsubishi Heavy Industries . Many consider this aircraft to be Japan's first domestically made stealth fighter. ATD-X is an acronym for "Advanced Technology Demonstrator – X". The aircraft is widely known in Japan as Shinshin (心神, meaning "mind"), although the name itself is an early code name within the Japan Self-Defense Forces and is not officially in use. The aircraft's first flight was on 22 April 2016

Anti-ship Missile
ANTI-SHIP MISSILES are guided missiles that are designed for use against ships and large boats. Most anti-ship missiles are of the sea skimming variety, and many use a combination of inertial guidance and active radar homing . A good number of other anti-ship missiles use infrared homing to follow the heat that is emitted by a ship; it is also possible for anti-ship missiles to be guided by radio command all the way. The first anti-ship missiles, which were developed and built by Nazi Germany
Germany
, used radio command guidance. These saw some success in the Mediterranean Theater in 1943–44, sinking or heavily damaging at least 31 ships with the Henschel Hs 293 and more than seven with the Fritz X , such as the Italian battleship Roma or the cruiser USS Savannah . A variant of the HS 293 had a TV transmitter on board
