Digital Flight Control System
In late 1992 GEC Avionics were awarded a contract worth over £7M to update the flight control system of the F-14 ‘Tom Cat’ to a fully digital system the F-14 Digital Flight Control System DFCS.
This embroidered sew-on badge portraying a Tom Cat and these badges were given away to flight crew, sub-contractors, visitors to Air Shows or often sold in souvenir shops.
