Notes:

This unit has a small colour shadow-mask tube in it - probably a commercial tube. A chassis and bezel with similarities to those used on Tornado or Indian Sea King programmes suggest that it was made in the 1980s almost certainly by the Company's Flight Automation Research Lab as a demonstrator. There is no information as to whether it ever was flown.
