|There are 7 entries in the definition.|
|ECCM||Electronic Counter-Counter Measures:|
Systems designed to counter the effects of ECM systems.
Systems designed to deceive sensors actively or passively into thinking that the target is somewhere else or cannot be seen.
A condition that is applied to minimize the amount of radiation from sensors, communication systems, and engines to avoid detection.
|EMF||Electro-Magnetic Field, the surrounding energy field of a fighting unit. A units EMF can be used by the enemy to detect by passive sensors. Smaller EMFs are recommended for designs.|
|EMI||Electro-Magnetic Interference, occurs when the electrical field of an object, device, or natural occurrence interferes with the operations of equipment.|
|EMP||Electro-Magnetic Pulse, a pulse of immense energy which may cause the sensitive components of systems to \"fry\" (fuse) causing the systems to fail. This can be permanent, temporary or no effect depending on the resistance and hardening of the systems.|
|EMRC||Electro-Magnetic Rail Cannon: A weapon system which propells shells by use of magnetism rather than by chemical means. EMRC\'s are considered as the best form of slug-thrower, but require high technology. EMRC\'s are also referred to as Gauss Cannons and Rail Cannons.|
