Very little is known about this item. This later unit is six years into the Harrier programme and the panel has a simple update with square illuminated push buttons on the upper part of the panel. The construction suggests that it is located on the Harrier, probably in the equipment bay. It was used to check out the aircraft systems prior to flight by monitoring the Built in Test Equipment in the avionics and commanding test functions. The given depth excludes the ten 280mm long cables.
