This is an LCD Assembly for a Radar and Map Display Processor unit, a part of TARDIS, from a Tornado GR4.

In February 2004 BAE Systems Avionics Systems was awarded a $70 million contract to provide 128 radar map display systems for the U.K. Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 ground attack aircraft. The system, known as the Tornado Advanced Radar/Map Display Information System (TARDIS), was developed in the United Kingdom and is replacing obsolete radar projected map display systems. TARDIS is a state-of-the-art system using active-matrix liquid crystal displays, the latest radar processing techniques, map generation software, and graphics using Wind River platform technologies and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware. TARDIS provides digital color display screens for the Tornado pilot and navigator, which can be used cooperatively or independently, and performs data fusion of radar data and digital moving map display data to provide advanced, enhanced situational awareness for low-level terrain navigation and avoidance capabilities.
