Nova Systems is excited to announce they will be supporting Leidos Australia to deliver the $500 million Joint Project 2096 Phase 1.

Announced on 13 February 2019 by the Minister for Defence Christopher Pyne and the Minister for Defence Industry Steven Ciobo, Leidos Australia secured their position as the Prime System Integrator (PSI) for this key data project.

Described by Defence as a “multi-phase and evolutionary program to enable and support military and intelligence force elements and organisations in their conduct of operations”, the project will ensure the integration of selected intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data and applications.

Nova Systems has been selected as a key sub-contractor to provide a systems training solution and verification and validation services, leveraging on its proven capabilities in these areas.

Nova Systems Australia and New Zealand Chief Executive, Steven Robinson said “Through this important new relationship, we are looking forward to having a significant impact supporting Leidos Australia to successfully deliver this strategically important capability to Defence.”

Nova Systems, Communications, Information & Space Business Unit, will support Leidos Australia in the training analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation phases in accordance with the System Approach to Defence Learning (SADL) to deliver the required Mission System training and Development Centre (Support System) services.

Joint Project 2096 will be delivered in two phases, each with a different capability objective. Phase 1 will provide infrastructure and functionality to the Defence Secret Network (DSN) to create a unified dataset that enables users to effectively manage ISR information and intelligence while Phase 2 will extend the capability provided by Phase 1 in response to ADO ISR capability requirements and priorities.
