Super! The project was cancelled but there was a wind-tunnel tests?
Thanks Arjen, I was just trying to understand your comment about ADA/Sea Dart needing three computers, as built the ADAWS-2 system in Britsol had two Ferranti 1600 computers according to every source I have seen. However, Ed Hampshire in his book 'From East of Suez to the Eastern Atlantic' also mentions that it was realised that two Ferranti 1600s would be insufficient due to the data demands somewhere between 1964 and 1966, that suggests to me that it was the Type 988/Broomstick that was the driver behind the need for a third computer and therefore a major cost driver in the whole programme.
