- AN- : U.S. military nomenclature for electronic equipment, following the Joint Electronics Type Designation System
- Apple Inc. : US-based electronics company, maker of Macintosh computers, the iPod, iPad and the iPhone.
- Automatic Identification System : A system, aboard ships and boats, that combines marine radio transmitters and receivers, Global Navigation Satellite System receivers, and computer control into a self-organizing, mobile network in which vessels are inform nearby traffic, potential collision hazards, and navigational information
- Computer network : A collection of computers or digital devices ("nodes") connected by communication links.
- Electromagnetic spectrum : The range of electromagnetic waves covering all frequencies and wavelengths.
- 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
- Foreign internal defense operations : Actions taken by U.S. personnel in support of a foreign internal defense grand strategy agreed to by the host nation and the U.S.
- GRC-245 : A Canadian-developed, Enhanced High Capacity Line-of-Sight (HCLOS) radio, used in the U.S. Army Warfighter Information Network–Tactical and by a number of countries; it provides up to 34 Mbps of digital information transfer compatible with the Joint Tactical Radio System architecture
- History of computing : How electronic computers were first invented; how the technology underlying them evolved.
- IEEE Project 802 : The main standards body, with many working groups, that specifies technical standards for wired and wireless local area networks, with ranges up to tens of kilometers
- IPhone : A cellular telephone manufactured and distributed by Apple Inc.
- IPod : A portable media player, produced and sold by Apple, Inc.
- Information operations : The integrated employment of the core capabilities of electronic warfare, computer network operations, psychological operations, military deception, and operations security.
- Information overload : A perception by a person (or observer) that the information associated with work tasks is greater than can be managed effectively, and a perception that such overload creates a degree of stress for which the coping strategies are ineffective.
- Internet Protocol Suite : The real-world set of networking protocols, with administrative and operational conventions, which populate the real-world working Internet
- Joint Tactical Information Distribution System : The primary communications system used for sharing tactical information internally, and among NATO, Australia, and other U.S. allies
- Local area network : A range of techniques for interconnecting multiple computers, over physical media such as wire or over wireless radio, within a limited geographic area, typically multiples of 100 meters.
- Locality of networks : The assumption, in networking technologies, about the characteristics of the user space they support, and, as importantly, the user spaces they should ignore
- Marine Air-Ground Task Force : The basic structure of United States Marine Corps combined arms, task-organized units
- Medium access control : The set of protocols and administrative conventions that let multiple computers or communications devices share a common network medium, usually referring to a local area network medium, but also an area of radio communications on a given part of the electromagnetic spectrum
- Mobile (engineering) : In the context of communications and electronics, especially military, a device or system that can be operate "on the move" (OTM) from a field-deployable vehicle or aircraft, but is not permanently mounted in its carrying vehicle
- Mobile ad hoc networking : A family of mobile computing techniques in which not only the hosts move, sometimes at supersonic speed, but the routers and other devices organizing them into networks also move
- PRC-117 : A recent, but prior to the Joint Tactical Radio System, U.S. military tactical software-defined radio family that operates in the full VHF/UHF frequency range, with an internal encryption unit, and compatibility with SINCGARS and HAVE QUICK II
- Portable : In the context of engineering, communications and electronics, especially military, a device or system that can be can be carried and used "on the move" by a single person, such as a cell phone or larger device such as a laptop computer
- 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
- Smartphone : Large-screen, data-centric, handheld cellular device designed to offer complete phone functions whilst simultaneously functioning as a personal digital assistant.
- Software-defined radio : Radio communication system where components that have typically been implemented in hardware are instead implemented using software on a personal computer or other embedded computing devices.
- Telephone : Telecommunications device that transmits and receives sound, most commonly the human voice, by converting the sound waves to pulses of electrical current, and then retranslating the current back to sound.
- ULQ-30 : A mobile system for collecting information on electronic transmitters and optionally jamming them, developed for the United States Marine Corps giving capabilities to temporarily block cellular telephony
- User Datagram Protocol : The simplest, lowest-overhead end-to-end protocol in the Internet Protocol Suite
- Video game : A game played using an electronic controller to manipulate images on a display screen.
- Warfighter Information Network–Tactical : Deployed in several increments of increasing capability, this is the partially deplyed tactical communications system for the U.S. Army, which have far more bandwidth and is becoming a mobile "on the move" self-organizing network; sometimes called the "tactical internet" Through the Army Battle Command System, it interfaces to the Global Information Grid.
- Wireless local area network : A local area network, with a range in hundreds to thousands of meters, which transfers high-speed digital data without a direct physical connection between nodes on the network, usually by radio; the nodes are assumed to stay in one general area, as opposed to moving widely as in cellular telephony
