- Aviation : Technology, operations and economics of aerial flight by human-developed machines
- Electronic engineering : The field of engineering that deals with the behavior and effects of electrons (as in electron tubes and transistors) and with electronic devices, systems, or equipment.
- Electronic warfare : A subset of information operations that deals with the use of electromagnetic or kinetic means to degrade an enemy's military electronics systems, to be able to operate one's own electronics in the face of enemy attacks, and to evade those attacks through protection or deception
- Fire control (military) : Techniques and equipment to designate military weapons (artillery, guided missiles) to be launched, launching them, and, especially when not precision-guided munitions, adjusting subsequent projectile launches so they achieve the desired effect.
- Infrared search and track : Add brief definition or description
- Forward looking infrared : Add brief definition or description
- Navigation : Techniques for determining one's own position, a feasible course to be taken to a desired new position, and journeying on that course
- TACAN : Add brief definition or description
- LORAN : Add brief definition or description
- Global Navigation Satellite System : A system which allows small electronic devices to determine their location (Longitude, Latitude, and Altitude) as well as time with an accuracy of up to a few centimetres using time signals transmitted along a line of sight by radio from satellites.
- Radar : (acronym for "radio detection and ranging") A technique used for detecting and tracking targets, navigation, imagery, and special applications.
- Radio : Transmission and reception of information, which can be voice, data or imagery over electromagnetic radiation in free space (i.e., wireless). The information is modulated onto a carrier wave
- Form factor : Physical size of a device including linear dimensions, mounting and connector standards, and other parameters that categorize the item as belonging to a mechanically compatible family.
- MIL-STD-1553 : An extensively used interconnection standard among military electronics components, slow in comparison with local area networks but intended for simple command-response control in electrically noisy environments
