Decoy launcher for Adelaide upgrade. (Asia-Pacific Report).
ADI Ltd. (Sydney, Australia) has chosen the Terma (Lystrup, Denmark) SKWS naval decoy launcher for its continuing upgrade of Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Adelaide-class guided-missile frigates. The launcher will be used to fire the Rafael (Haifa, Israel) Long Range Chaff Rockets, ordered by ADI under a recent $4-million deal (see "RAN Frigate Upgrades Continue," JED, September 2002, p. 18).
In June 1999, ADI signed a $587-million prime contract for the frigate upgrade (see "Australia Awards Frigate-Upgrade Contract," JED, July 1999, p. 20). ADI, in turn, selected Rafael to provide its C-Pearl electronic-support-measures (ESM) system, replacing the frigates' existing AN/SLQ-32(V)2 systems (see "RAN Orders ESM Suite for Frigates," JED, October 1999, p. 20).
