The firm specialises in defence work and believes Novaâ€™s strengths would give it a competitive edge in the UK.
â€œNova will be an agile company focused on delivering on best for capability â€“ thatâ€™s bang for buck,â€ according to Novaâ€™s inaugural UK chief Stephen Camporeale.
â€œIt will have the correct balance between quality, cost and schedule.â€
Mr Camporeale is overseeing a new office established in London near the UKâ€™s Ministry of Defence headquarters and a Nova Systems-owned aerospace design business in the seaside town of Bournemouth.
â€œWe bought the aerospace design company to support design work in Australia so that our design work here was recognised in Europe,â€ Mr Camporeale said. He believed that Nova was the first significant-sized defence company to launch operations in the UK since the signing of the Australia-UK Defence and Security Co-operation Treaty earlier this year.
â€œThere have been defence companies come to Australia, but not a significant-sized company going the other way.â€
