Proposed variants included Blue Dolphin, which was also called Blue Jay MkV. This was to have an active continuous wave radar seeker and was intended for Sea Vixen and TSR.2. Blue Jay MkV was similar in capability to the US AIM-7 Sparrow.


Would an active seeker have been reliable?

I don't think Blue Dolphin was to use an active seeker, but rather semi-active. I've read some stuff in the PRO records on Blue Jay Mk 5 and several different seekers were looked at.

Chris Gibson's forthcoming BSP 4 will shed more light on this ;)
