Nova Group Sponsors Boigu Island in “Battle of the Islands” Football Tournament
Jul 3, 2019
Nova Group is proud to sponsor the men’s and women’s Boigu Island touch football teams in the Torres Strait Islands 2019 “Battle of the Islands” tournament!
Taking place from Tuesday 30 July to Sunday 4 August on Thursday island, the football tournament provides an opportunity for the Torres Strait Islander communities to come together to represent their respective islands and offers indigenous youths an opportunity to showcase their skills and abilities.
Representing Boigu Island are 32 male and female indigenous youths competing in the 2019 touch football tournament.
Due to the extremely remote nature of these islands, the opportunities for the islander communities to compete in tournaments such as these are limited and often rely on the support of sponsors such as Nova Group.
Rich in history and tradition, the Boigu Island is a low-lying mud flat island, sitting approximately 1.6m above sea level in the top Western cluster of the Torres Strait.
The Boigu people hold a strong connection to the land, sea and sky, relying on their traditional knowledge to safely travel the waterways to other islands and mainland Australia and hunt for and gather food.
In recent years, the island has been significantly impacted by changing weather patterns and noticeable increases in rising sea levels.
Boigu Island’s community and traditional landowners are concerned that the reality of rising sea levels brings the risk that Boigu Island and other low-lying communities on Australia’s borders.
The island community and Nova Group are focused on raising awareness of the environmental threat Boigu Island and others are now facing.
Nova Group is proud to support the passionate Boigu Island community, rich in tradition and culture. Good luck!

SmartSat CRC set to propel Australia into the global space industry
Apr 15, 2019
Today, the Federal Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews announced the success of the SmartSat Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) proposal led by The University of South Australia and Nova Systems, parent company Nova Group.
Positioned to propel Australia into the global space industry, the SmartSat CRC initiative is a collaborative research and development effort, providing significant opportunities for the Australian Space industry.
The centre has 74 participants contributing $167 million adding to the federal government’s $55 million spend.
Focusing on advanced satellite communications, connectivity and earth observation, the centre will be based in Adelaide, Australia’s “Space City” alongside the Australian Space Agency and will cement Australia as a future leader in the global space industry.
In sharing the news, Chief Executive Nova Systems ANZ, Mr Steven Robinson highlighted the significant impact the CRC would have in Australia, building sovereign space capability, creating business and employment opportunities, driving innovation, and strengthening the economy.
“It is exciting to be at the forefront of an Australian Space industry milestone. We have already seen overwhelming support and collaboration for the CRC from industry leaders and world-renowned research organisations.”
“The CRC is another step towards the enhancement of the capability and competitiveness of the Australian space sector, providing an opportunity for the next generation of space companies and technologies.”
Mr Robinson also recognised Australia’s growing space industry as an inspiration for young Australians to pursue a career in STEM, an area Nova Systems is deeply committed to through their delivery of specialist capability training.
The Australian Space Agency’s goal of creating a $12 billion Australian space industry, generating an extra 20,000 jobs by 2030, is in reach with the largest R&D investment into Australia’s space industry to date.
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.
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. The licences are set to bolster the Australian space economy by supporting satellite users in several innovative ways.
The SmartSat CRC will ensure Australia can execute a technological leap-frog to deliver smart satellite systems that are Australian designed, owned and operated and that will deliver the nation real-time connectivity, surveillance and sensing capability over land and sea, earth observation data to monitor climate and development, and the power to drive industry innovation and the growth of the Internet of Things.
