This paper concerns the present well-known problems of complexity and unreliability in aviation electronics. It points out that the situation is unique in radio engineering and does not exist in other branches of engineering. It explains how this came about, points out that the demands for greater complexity will continue, and states that correction requires more than attention to such things as more reliable tubes and components. Suggestions are given for improvement, with particular emphasis on the need for more realistic requirement specifications by planning agencies, and for more intimate relations among electronic engineers, aircraft engineers, and field operations.
