Most large organisations had a range of hand-outs as gifts at Air Shows and Open Days and stickers are always popular.
This is a sticker for the AQS901 programme and was produced as stick-on from a backing sheet and there was also a pin-on badge. The Nimrod Maritime Patrol aircraft carried passive sonobuoys which are designed to listen and not emit signals, with the aim of preventing a submarine from realising it is being tracked. The data gleaned from these sonar buoys was transmitted to the Marconi AQS 901 Acoustics Processing and Display System for analysis.
