Reading through the analysis section of 'Jane's Radar and Electronic Warfare Systems, 1990-91', 2nd ed., I came across an interesting brief entry.

"P111 - Coherent pulse multi-mode strike. AI and terrain following radar. Developed for classified project. - Marconi"

Does anyone know any more information? Was the radar development programme the classified project referred to, or was it intended for an aircraft project? A possible Tornado upgrade?

Interestingly, there is another similar radar programme, but without dates its impossible to say if these were undergoing development within the same timeframe.

"SATF - Strike and terrain following radar. I/J-band multi-mode. - Ferranti"
