- A-10 Thunderbolt II : A heavily armed close air support and ground attack aircraft, which can loiter over a battlefield and then hit targets with great accuracy, while retaining high survivability against ground fire.
- AAR-47 : A threat detector for aircraft; all versions detect the heat of oncoming missiles; modified versions also detect laser designator beams
- AGM-65 Maverick : Short-range air-to-surface missile with multiple guidance and warhead options, certified for 25 past and present aircraft
- ALE-37 : An electronic warfare expendables dispenser, optimized for dispensing of large volumes of chaff over an area being attacked or overflown, in support of an overall mission rather than the more usual protection of a single aircraft
- ALE-39 : An obsolete dispenser of electronic warfare expendables (e.g., flares and chaff), to be replaced by the AN/ALE-47
- : An electronic warfare expendables dispenser, to be replaced by the AN/ALE-47
- ALE-47 : An intelligent countermeasures dispenser for military aircraft, which can receive commands directly from warning receivers, and dispense expendable radar and infrared decoys, as well as manage a retrievable decoy towed via an fiber optic cable
- ALQ-178 : A U.S. made modular electronic warfare system intended for foreign military sales to F-16 Fighting Falcon operators; not all features will be made available to all countries due to technology transfer controls
- ALQ-213 : A Danish Air Force-designed electronics countermeasures suite controller used on aircraft of many countries
- ALR-69 : A radar warning receiver that characterizes the threat beyond simple warning; of early 2000s vintage on aircraft including the A-10 Thunderbolt II, MC-130 COMBAT TALON, MH-53 PAVE LOW, F-16 Fighting Falcon and C-130 Hercules
- AN- : U.S. military nomenclature for electronic equipment, following the Joint Electronics Type Designation System
- APR-39 : A radar warning receiver and electronics countermeasures suite controller that provides coverage for C/D and E through J band CW radar, used on helicopters and slow fixed-wing aircraft
- C-130 Hercules : An extremely successful (in production for over 50 years) medium-range military transport aircraft with an extremely wide range of variants, including tanker, special operations and C3I-ISR, and ski-equipped LC-130.
- 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
- Commercial-off-the-shelf : Parts and equipment that can be built into a system without being custom-built to meet specifications.
- EU-NATO-US frequency bands : A terminological scheme by the European Union, the NATO and the U.S. military to broadly classify electromagnetic frequencies used for radio and radar.
- Electronic attack : A subset of electronic warfare that actively interferes with the operation of hostile systems; previously called electronic countermeasures (ECM)
- Electronic intelligence : Collection and analysis of electronic signals not intended to be intelligible to humans, such as radar or navigational aids
- Electronic protection : A part of electronic warfare which includes a variety of practices which attempt to reduce or eliminate the effect of electronic countermeasures (ECM) on electronic sensors aboard vehicles, ships and aircraft and weapons such as missiles.
- 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
- 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.
- Ethernet : An early proprietary standard for local area networks developed by IEEE Project 802; the term has become generic for various connectors and communications techniques although the name of a standard would be more precise.
- Eurocopter Tiger : Made by EADS, a light attack helicopter, used for armed reconnaissance, for countries including Australia, France, Germany and Spain
- Flare (electronic warfare) : An expendable electronic warfare decoy form of infrared countermeasures
- 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
