Development started in 1949 at the British Army’s Radar Research and Development Establishment as the AA No. 4 Mark VII to provide medium-range early warning for up to sixteen anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) batteries. Early in the program, the team saw the Royal Navy’s Comprehensive Display System, and adapted it as the Data Handling System. This provided a semi-automated track while scan function that allowed operators to handle larger numbers of aircraft.

The system was originally designed to support AAA guns by passing data on a selected target to point (or “put on”) the AAA’s local gun laying radar. The defensive role began to move from guns to the new Bloodhound missile, and the Mark VII was adapted to work with that missile’s Yellow River radars. In 1953, the RAF took over the air defense role and gave the system the Type 82 name. The first prototype began operation that year and a second was briefly used in 1955 before being moved to the UK east coast as an operational unit in 1957. Three production units were added in 1960.
