Nova Systems has successfully delivered simulation capability software into the Australian Defence Force to help maximise operational success and safety.
The company’s Geoplex group partnered with Analytical Graphics Inc (AGI) to deliver sophisticated Systems Tool Kit (STK) physics modelling software tools to Australia’s Air Warfare School (AWS) after a period of consultation.
AWS and the Air Force's Surveillance and Response Group No 41 Wing (41WG) will now train their staff to model, simulate, and analyse various scenarios of mission planning to better prepare for air warfare or communications operations in the future.
“This sophisticated capability provides our Australian defence personnel with the ability to model, simulate, test and analyse upcoming operations to ensure the user has the maximum chance of operational success and safety,” Jim McDowell, Group Chief Executive Officer, Nova Group said.
“As defence personnel acquire new skills and knowledge through the operation of these tools from AGI, we will create and deliver a tactical advantage for Australia, building on our sovereign smarts and capability.”
Geoplex was founded a decade ago and is part of Nova Systems' brand portfolio, a 100% owned and controlled Australian engineering and technology company.
McDowell said investing in this kind of highly specialist software ensures defence can model an extensive range of scenarios from satellite orbits to vehicle capability on various terrains to assess the impact of collisions in battlefield environments.
“This is the kind of technology that will ensure Australia continues to move forward with world-class knowledge, first class capability and future growth within situational awareness domains,” he said.
