avionics
A field of applied research in which electronic devices are adapted to use in aviation. Avionics are aeronautical electronics, not necessarily restricted to aerodynes only. Although the term implies use of equipment in airborne applications only, it also extends to ground-based equipment like radar and surface-to-air weapons.
