Notes:

The year for this item arises from the "1985" in its various part numbers. The CAGE code K0662 refers to the South Gyle and Crewe Toll sites in Edinburgh which, in 1985, were occupied by Ferranti.

It is likely that DDVR means: "Digital Data Voice Recorder". This is consistent with a video recorder's bandwidth being utilised for bulk digital data recording, possibly for on-aircraft system development.
