Etymology: [D. roover a robber. See Rove, v. i.]
ROVER, which stands for Remotely Operated Video Enhanced Receiver, is a system which allows ground forces, such as Forward Air Controllers, to see what an aircraft or unmanned aerial vehicle is seeing in real time by receiving images acquired by the aircraft's sensors on a laptop on the ground. There's little time delay and usage of ROVER greatly improves the FAC on the ground reconnaissance and target identification which are essential to close air support.
Dictionary of Nautical Terms
A pirate or freebooter. (See PIRATE.) Also, a kind of piratical galley of the Barbary States.
