The Flanagan Institute (フラナガン機関 Furanagan Kikan?) is a fictional civilian research institute that appears in Mobile Suit Gundam.

History

The Flanagan Institute was sponsored by the Principality of Zeon, which was established in June of U.C. 0079 at Baldur Bay colony of neutral Side 6 (L4) to investigate Newtype phenomena. In addition to scientific research, the Flanagan Institute's work involves developing weapons for use by Newtypes, recruiting Newtype test subjects, and training them to use their powers in battle. With the discovery of "Newtypes" among the human population, the Principality of Zeon saw the potential of using these Newtypes - many of them possessing precognition, enhanced intuition, and lightning-fast reflexes - as tools in their war against the Earth Federation. The Flanagan Institute was charged with the study of Newtype candidates and the development of new weapons capable of making use of Newtypes' abilities. The institute completes a prototype “psychic communicator” (Psycommu) system on U.C. 0079.10, and one notable member of the institute, Chlust Moses, was responsible for developing the EXAM System. After the end of the One Year War, the Earth Federation Forces and Neo Zeon took over the research conducted by the Flanagan Institute, and developed specialized mobile suits and mobile armors.
