Ultraquiet -- -- Ship systems lineup done in a tactical situation such as a trailing op or in wartime. The quietest equipment is operating and cooking, showering, laundry and movies are curtailed.

UQC -- -- Underwater telephone, a misleading term because it is nothing like a telephone. A microphone on the conn is patched into the BQQ-10’s spherical array’s active hydrophones, which broadcast the voice signal. Similarly, a voice transmission can be received and patched to a conn speaker.

Unit -- -- A torpedo launched by own ship.
