symmetric monoidal (∞,1)-category of spectra
The term highly structured spectrum refers to models for spectra by model categories which carry more structure than sequential spectra, such as to support a symmetric monoidal smash product of spectra (see there for more background). This includes excisive functors, orthogonal spectra, symmetric spectra and S-modules. For details see Introduction to Stable homotopy theory, Part 1-2 – Structured spectra.
Similarly a highly structured ring spectrum is a monoid in this context (a model for an A-infinity algebra/E-infinity algebra).
