JAM - a technique that electronic warfare personnel use to frustrate the enemy by generating interference to active electronic signals and passive monitoring.

to navy1954, thanks for correcting my frigate error. After having been escorted by both frigates and destroyers, I knew frigates were smaller.

Glacis

A (slippery) slope running down from a parapet to the ground, so as to expose attackers to fire from the ramparts. French for "slippery place".

FRIGATE - a Naval warship that is larger than a destroyer and smaller than a cruiser. They are primarily used to protect other ships. Prior to the mid-1970's, they were known as destroyer escorts.
