- ARC-164 : The standard U.S. and NATO UHF radio for military air-to-air and air-to-ground communications, compatible with the HAVE QUICK II electronic protection scheme; it is not a Joint Tactical Radio System device although JTRS units will interoperate with it
- BaE Systems ALARM : A anti-radiation missile developed by the Royal Air Force, with direct attacks and parachute-borne loiter mode, slower than the U.S. AGM-88 HARM but with more advanced search and suppression capabilities
- Chaff (electronic warfare) : A passive, disposable radar countermeasure using strips of metal foil or aluminized plastic, cut to match the wavelength of the expected radar, and used to send false reflections back to the radar receiver
- Electronic attack : A subset of electronic warfare that actively interferes with the operation of hostile systems; previously called electronic countermeasures (ECM)
- Electronics countermeasures suite controller : A computer aboard a protected vehicle, which both aids in situational awareness of weapon and sensor threats to the vehicles, and reduces crew workload in countering the threats. Practical implementations usually include at least one electronic warfare function in the controller, such as a radar warning receiver or electronic warfare expendables dispenser.
- F-15 Eagle : A series of air superiority fighters, designed for the United States Air Force and flown by several countries; intended for the high role in the high-low mix; The F-15E Strike Eagle is a multirole fighter variant.
- Flare (electronic warfare) : An expendable electronic warfare decoy form of infrared countermeasures
- Information operations : The integrated employment of the core capabilities of electronic warfare, computer network operations, psychological operations, military deception, and operations security.
- JTRS waveform : Within the Joint Tactical Radio System, compatibility with a waveform includes the software-defined radio not only to emulate a given frequency range and modulation, but encryption, medium-sharing technique for multiple access, and electronic protection
- SLQ-25 : A towed deceptive decoy for protecting ships against acoustic-homing torpedoes
- Spread spectrum : A communications technique in which the information to be transmitted travels redundantly over multiple channels (e.g., frequencies, time slots), the number and identity of which may change. It provides greater immunity to noise and electronic attack, makes it harder to intercept, and can increase capacity of a shared medium.
