The Australian Government sought to replace the Royal Australian Navy hydrographic capability with an efficient combination of military and commercial hydrographic and oceanographic survey capabilities.
Nova Systems was part of the Integrated Project Team providing services including project management, solicitation documentation, maritime systems engineering, and capability development professionals. We also provided sustainment and logistics support specialists and commercial support to the team.
The team provided the project documentation suite for Phase 1 review of alternative capability solutions and the parallel development of an invitation to register interest and artefacts to support the competitive evaluation process. This included contract coordination activities for the two independent capability elements (Hydro Industry Partnership Programme and Strategic Military Survey Capability).
