Nova Systems Exhibiting at MILCIS 2019
Oct 25, 2019
Nova Systems is exhibiting at the Military Communication and Information Systems Conference (MILCIS) 2019, 12 – 14 November.
MilCIS is a unique opportunity for those investing in government and military communications and information systems.
In November each year, the Defence Chief Information Officer Group (CIOG) partners with the University of New South Wales, Canberra and the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE) to present MilCIS. The conference facilitates a continuing dialogue between Department of Defence employees, contractors, industry and researchers to discuss current and developing technological capabilities, project initiatives, and operational requirements.
In addition to keynote presentations, technical presentations, panel discussions and tutorials, MilCIS features an exposition that provides an opportunity for exhibitors to demonstrate new technologies and promote their products and services to attendees.
MilCIS is the only Australian conference that focuses strategically on the crucial technologies, products, systems and services associated with military communications and information systems.
Nova Systems is your trusted partner in the assured delivery of sovereign tactical data link, communications, space knowledge, and delivery of software/modelling solutions.
At MILCIS, the team will be showcasing their software modelling capabilities, including operational tool TACPLANNER. The tool enabled Defence’s Satellite Operations Planning Cell (SatOps) to better manage the ADF’s satellite communication assets, and saw Nova awarded a place as a finalist for Defence Innovator of the Year in the 2019 Defence Industry awards.
Tactical Data Links are another area where Nova possesses a unique combination of technical domain expertise and software modelling capabilities. Utilising the Defence security accredited architecture of TACPLANNER, Nova has now codified the next generation Link 22 planning and design into a single user friendly solution.
Join the team on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 Nov at stand #F28 for a demonstration of their next generation Link 22 planning tool!
Recently, Nova launched the Nova IGS Network company in Australia, delivering agile space ground connectivity for small satellite operators. The Nova IGS Network brings a modern and New Space-focused satellite ground station capability to Australia. Its customer-focus, ability to respond rapidly and high degree of cybersecurity make this indigenous capability an attractive offering for commercial and institutional LEO, MEO and GEO operators alike.
Visit us at stand #F28 to meet our team and learn more about our capabilities.

ANMM Seahawk helicopter proudly sponsored by Nova Systems

Maritime Museum’s new decommissioned Tiger Seahawk helicopter to officially launch
Newly decommissioned Navy Seahawk helicopter Tiger 75 has just been installed at the Australian National Maritime Museum and will be officially launched on 9 October by the Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Michael Joseph Noonan, AO and sponsors Nova Systems and Lockheed Martin.
The Seahawk will be officially launched into the National Maritime Collection in conjunction with the premiere of the limited-run The Art of Navy exhibition – an intimate exhibit of original photographic works by internationally recognised Australian artist Ralph Kerle, which will be on display in the Museum’s Navy Gallery until the end of October.
“The 19.76 metre long tiger-striped Seahawk joins the Museum’s permanent collection, offering a dramatic renewal opportunity for the Navy Gallery to represent the Navy’s role in civilian rescue operations, and is bound to be a huge hit with aircraft and navy fans of all ages,” comments Kevin Sumption, Australian Maritime Museum Director.
The striking Sikorsky S-70B Seahawk is painted with Tiger stripes to reflect the 816 Squadron Crest, which depicts the head of a Bengal tiger, with the motto, ‘Imitate the Action of the Tiger’ drawn from William Shakespeare’s ‘Henry V’. It was a venerable anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface surveillance and targeting and search and rescue weapons platform which served the Royal Australian Navy honourably from 1988 to 2018.
During this time, the N24-006/875 made multiple deployments to the Middle East and other international trouble spots, notes Sumption: “It was also one of two Seahawks aboard HMAS Newcastle that participated in the search and rescue operation associated with the ill-fated 1998 Sydney-to-Hobart yacht race. 2019 is the 75th anniversary of the Sydney to Hobart and that’s just one of the reasons we felt it should be on display.”
Sponsor Nova Systems, have over 450 staff across Australia including several ex-Royal Australian Navy members who remember with pride their operations, support and maintenance of Seahawk aircraft over the past 25 years. One Nova employee, Steven Hamilton was the Commanding Officer of HMAS NEWCASTLE who operated this S-70B Seahawk from her decks during the 1998/99 infamous Sydney to Hobart rescue operation.
The Lockheed Martin-Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk has now replaced the S-70B-2 in RAN service and Sponsor Lockheed Martin Australia are proud the legacy lives on, hanging on display in the Museum for the public of Australia.
The Seahawk replaces the older Westland Wessex helicopter, which will be transferred to the Australian War Memorial, most importantly ensuring it remains in a national collection as an integral chapter in Australian Navy history.
The Museum is grateful to the Royal Australian Navy for adding this exciting piece of naval history into the Australian National Maritime Collection.
