At the time of writing (1986) there is under development Winnin, a ship-borne device described as a Hovering Rocket Active Expendable Decoy. The entry of sea-skimming missiles of great accuracy, as exemplified in the Falklands War, generated great activity in international defence science and technology. Counter missiles, lasers, and high rate of fire machine guns (such as Phalanx) were researched and some developed. The Australian initiative was to develop this decoy rocket system.
