==Spoofing==
Spoofing is an effort to fool enemy sensors into reporting false information.  If successful, the sensor will report detecting something different from what is actually present.  A spoofing system might send out signals or energy patterns consistent with something harmless or friendly, disguising an approaching threat.  Spoofing might be accomplished by configuring a vehicle to reflect active sensor waves in the same pattern as a friendly vehicle or by mimicking the transponder transmissions of a friendly vehicle.
