Project FLEWS was approved in June 1997, followed by a demonstration of ESM equipment conducted in 1998 -- in conjunction with Australia's Defence Science and Technology Organisation -- to shortlist core systems for the program.
The project will provide a basic support to FLEWs in establishing small business at village base, which will fulfill the livestock requirements for maintaining health and nutritional support.
The FLEWS is a detection and DF system that will be used in a vehicle-mounted configuration by three Light Electronic Warfare Teams.
LAND 131, known as Project Carnka, is another multiphase, multiyear program that seeks to provide the same mobility as the FLEWS, but with added capability.
