In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, chief executive of Nova Systems Jim McDowell joins host Phil Tarrant to unpack the latest at the leading Australian defence company.

The pair begin by discussing Nova Systems’ re-brand, which reflects the company’s recent growth – employing over a thousand people and turning over around $300 million in revenue – across specialist systems engineering advisory and management services, as well as advanced digital technology, software, services and systems integration solutions.

The podcast then continues by analysing Nova Systems’ core competency of test and evaluation and the hopes to shift into operating as a horizontal prime, and how it aims to play a larger role in Australia’s defence ecosystem.

The pair wrap up by discussing Nova Systems’ approach to building a sovereign defence industry, including building an experienced workforce in Australia, and examine how AUKUS will provide a unique opportunity for Australian businesses to broaden their industrial bases in the UK and US.
