Highlighted by useful notations on word origins, a practical ready reference has been thoroughly revised, expanded, and updated for the twenty-first century, encompassing hundreds of definitions of naval abbreviations and acronyms.

Publishers Description
This book (and its companion volume, Dictionary of Naval Terms) is written for Navy neophytes who want - indeed need - to be able to understand the language of their new profession. It is also written for outsiders: journalists writing stories about the Navy, congressional staffers whose principals serve on naval related subcommittees, academics studying naval history, and the like. And, because the Navy has grown so large and so complex, this book is even written for seasoned veterans of the naval profession who, like fluent translators of foreign languages, must still occasionally look up a word to stay in the know.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A solid, recommended library reference  Nov 7, 2005
Deborah W. Cutler and Thomas J. Cutler's Dictionary Of Naval Abbreviations translates and defines many brief, common forms of naval communications which professional sailors may readily understand, but others may miss. Even staff briefings are filled with such abbreviations and special terminology, and any who regularly need to understand naval proceedings would do well to keep Dictionary Of Naval Abbreviations as a translator's reference. It and its companion Dictionary Of Naval Terms are written for Navy neophytes who have a need to understand the language of their new profession - and for outsiders such as journalists. A solid, recommended library reference.
If You Need This, There's No Where Else to Get It.  Mar 18, 2005
Consider this sentence: "UNODIR, COMDESRON 9 will COMEX 300700Z AUG using VTF and BD AMMO for all WEPSYS unless CASREP."

Clearly you understand that this means: "Unless otherwise directed, the commander of destroyer squadron nine will commence the exercise at 7 o'clock in the morning on 30 August using variable time fuze and base detonating ammunition for all weapons systems unless they have been reported as nonfunctioning on a standard Navy casualty report."

All you need to know is contained in these 469 pages. There are so many definitions here, that I doubt even the most seasoned sailor knows them all. It makes fascinating reading.

Some of the abbreviations are pretty confusing in their own right.

SAR can mean:
Sea-Air Rescue
Search and Rescue
Selected Acquisition Reports
Selected Air Reserve
Special Aeronautical Requirements
Standard Average and Range
Substance Abuse Report
Supply Activity Report
Synthetic Aperture Radar.
