    A Trivia question for WW II buffs or those involved in Radio communications.

    Who came up with the original concept for a jamming proof radio system to control torpedoes in WW II? This system evolved into a system for U.S. Navy ships used to securely communicate with one another during the Cuban Missile Crisis and Blockade. This same type of secure communications system was used to control reconnaissance drones in Vietnam and is currently being researched as a secure method of cell phone communication.

    Hint: Think Hollywood!

    Now did you get the answer or do you have to look at the link?
