A strong supporter of enhancing the capability and competitiveness of the Australian space sector, Nova Systems signed a Statement of Strategic Intent with the Australian Space Agency in December 2018. The statement demonstrates Nova Systems commitment to the Australian Space industry and development of sovereign space-based capabilities. Nova Systems Australia and New Zealand Chief Executive Steven Robinson commented.

“We are focused on collaborating and supporting projects and partnerships in the space sector that contribute to the generation of jobs, innovation and growth within the Australian economy.

As a leading Australian SATCOM capability, we are committed to solving problems of national interest through enabling satellite communications, next generation ground stations and space situational technologies.”

In support of their commitment, Nova Systems recently obtained Spectrum licences for a range of frequencies within the satellite spectrum from the Australian Communication and Media Authority. These licences will allow Nova Systems to make a tangible contribution to the Australian space economy by supporting satellite users in several innovative ways.

Nova Systems is also a strong supporter of the proposed SmartSat CRC initiative being considered by the Australian Government. The collaboration is an effort to solve major satellite system and advanced communications challenges. The initiative would result in enhanced connectivity, navigation and monitoring of Australia and its resources.
