Described by Defence as a "multi-phase and evolutionary program to enable and support military and intelligence force elements and organisations in their conduct of operations”, the project will ensure the integration of selected intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data and applications.

Nova Systems has been selected as a key sub-contractor to provide a systems training solution and verification and validation services, leveraging its proven capabilities in these areas.

Nova Systems Australia and New Zealand chief executive Steven Robinson welcomed the announcement, saying, "Through this important new relationship, we are looking forward to having a significant impact supporting Leidos Australia to successfully deliver this strategically important capability to Defence."

Minister Pyne said the project was critical to enhancing the security of Australians at home and abroad: "This project will allow intelligence analysts to rapidly search and discover collected data to improve intelligence and decision support to Australian Defence Force and whole-of-government decision makers."

This first tranche will integrate selected ISR data and applications, provide an ISR search and discovery capability, deliver an ISR development and support centre, and sustain the ISR integration capability throughout its life.

Nova Systems' communications, information and space business unit will support Leidos Australia in the training analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation phases in accordance with the System Approach to Defence Learning (SADL) to deliver the required Mission System training and Development Centre (Support System) services.

JP 2096 is broken into two distinct phases with different capability objectives. Phase 1 will provide infrastructure and functionality to the Defence Secret Network (DSN) to create a unified dataset that enables users to effectively manage ISR information and intelligence.

JP 2096 Phase 1 focuses on the design and development of an architecture that will provide networked access to the growing volumes of data sourced from multiple surveillance sensors available to the Australian Defence Organisation (ADO), and facilitate the related information management (including search, tasking and dissemination) of the sensor outputs. Phase 1 will also provide an ISR integration capability, key ISR services and integration of legacy ISR capabilities. 

Phase 2 will extend the capability provided by Phase 1 in response to ADO ISR capability requirements and priorities. The extension of the Australian Defence ISR Integration Backbone (ADIIB) capability under Phase 2 will also include the continued integration of legacy capabilities, the provision of key ISR services, and the application of the architecture to other physical or security domains.
