- Mar 5, 2018
Nova Systems has been awarded a Defence Innovation Hub contract for the Technology Demonstration of a full scale high speed, unmanned Mobile Target System that is capable of significant stand-off control, on sealed, unsealed and off roads.
The agile high-speed target intends to represent real operational scenarios where engagement can happen from any direction to enhance precision lethality training and testing for air and land-based Defence personnel.
Named as one of Australia’s Most Innovative Companies, Nova Systems has been developing the concept through an internal Innovation Project aimed at enhancing its Test & Trials service offering.
Commenting on the contract award, Nova Systems Group Chief of Capability & Strategy Nick Kemp said “This is an exciting project for our innovation team. We have put a lot of thought into adapting commercially available all-terrain vehicles, for Unmanned applications. This option could provide Defence a low cost, expendable, high speed option that enhances their operational training and testing’.
Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne provided a release stating, ‘The Defence Innovation Hub is a key initiative of the Turnbull government bringing industry and Defence together to undertake collaborative innovation activities from concept through to introduction into service’.
