The Cage Code K0662 is for Selex Galileo but this was originally GEC-Ferranti at Edinburgh. The Mission Computer was designed for the Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer.
At present it is not known what HGG stands for.

In January 2005 BAE Systems Platform Solutions announced that it will provide the mission computer and autopilot system for 20 Hawk 128 Advanced Jet Trainer aircraft recently ordered by the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence. Hawk’s cockpit is designed to look, feel and function like the latest generation of front-line combat aircraft.

The Head-Up Display and full-colour Multi-Functional Displays are supported by the latest generation mission computers that can provide display data representative of the latest combat aircraft such as Typhoon and F-35, and the latest navigational aids such as a digital moving map.

The mission computer is an open-architecture system in development at Platform Solutions' facility in Edinburgh, U.K. This computer provides the graphics for all six cockpit display panels and a head-up display.
