Fenix provided the Demining Project Office (DPO) for the Falkland Islands Mine Clearance Programme through all 5 phases of practical operations.  In addition to provision of formal external quality monitoring services, the Fenix team chaired the local land release committee.  Fenix ran a detailed operational performance management database allowing the DPO manager to analyse performance, check the validity of future plans and identify trends and other performance features that influence overall programme performance.  The programme provided an opportunity for early implementation of approaches to non-technical and technical survey, as well as the use of machines to support efficient targeting of clearance operations.
