Notes:

This is a space model marked as a Stores Management Processor. It is very similar to the EA-6B unit which suggests that it was an early concept to prove the installation

A Stores Management System (SMS) is used to manage the weapons and other supplies attached to a military aircraft. The pilot uses the SMS to programme the selected weapon for each master mode, load stores into the inventory (tell the airplane what stores are loaded), enter weapon release data, activate loaded weapons, monitor weapons load and status, and control selective jettison.
