Electronics has been an important element of warfare since early in the twentieth century. Radio can help a Corporal deploy a squad or allow a General to coordinate an entire theatre of operations. Radar and sonar locate targets and direct fire on them, as well as warning that one may soon become a target. Radio and radar are subject to jamming (ECM, Electronic Countermeasures) and respond with ECCM, Electronic Counter Countermeasures.
