Does anyone know anything about Ferranti's CASTOR radar, loser to EMI's in the 'fly off' back in the 1980s?

I read somewhere it was related to Blue Falcon, rather than the more obvious Blue Kestrel. Was this another member of the Blue Vixen/ECR.90 family?

For a pic of the radar in an Islander (I recall seeing it at Farnborough '84) see:

Blue Kestrel shared a lot of technology with Blue Vixen I believe, just like Blue Fox & Seaspray.
