GVH Aerospace's Parent, Nova Group Named Amongst Australia's Most Innovative Companies
Aug 22, 2016
Nova Group – GVH Aerospace’s parent brand – has just been named amongst the top 50 Most Innovative Companies in Australia for 2016. Named at number 30 – out of thousands of entries – Nova Group impressed by identifying a new and innovative method for gas leak detection using technology from our more traditional market of Aerospace.
Congratulations to our Innovation Manager Jon Couldrick, and our dedicated Innovation team for again being listed for this prestigious award. Innovation continues to be a focus for all Nova Group brands, and is key to our success when delivering technology enabling solutions that solve the complex probelms that really matter.
“Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are penetrating the oil and gas market but are highly fragmented due to an imbalance of regulator, operator and business understanding. Falling oil prices makes it difficult to enter an industry that is furiously shedding costs. However, Nova Group was provided the opportunity to solve an industry wide problem to rapidly design, build and demonstrate a solution for gas leak detection in under six months. Gas leakage can impact flora, fauna and personnel working in the remote areas and early detection is vital, as well as missed business opportunities due to lost resources.
The Nova Group identified a new and innovative method for gas leak detection using technology discovered in a different industry. A decision was quickly made to demonstrate this using an UAV at the lead industry-wide conference to broaden Nova Group’s exposure. A multi-disciplinary team was assembled and together they developed a novel UAV rotation system, wrote software for controlling electrical components, integrated thermal cameras and developed computer vision intelligence for detecting leaks.
After agreeing to expand the demonstration to the entire industry, Nova Group’s CEO was approached to give a keynote presentation at the peak national oil and gas conference. It normally takes years of performance in the industry to achieve this platform, however Nova Group was able to gain it in one year. This project has further resulted in new business development, contributed to intrinsically motivating Nova Group’s employees, as well as promoting learnings from the initial project team.”

GVH Aerospace Announces Imminent Availability of EASA STC for Thommen HSL-1600 Searchlight
Jul 9, 2016
GVH Aerospace and Thommen Aircraft Equipment AG announce the imminent availability of the EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) on the Airbus Helicopter H135 series for the Thommen HSL-1600 high performance helicopter searchlight with integrated infrared capability.
The HSL-1600 high performance helicopter searchlight is a fully integrated searchlight with self-contained electronics, providing an easy means of installation and significant weight savings compared to traditional helicopter searchlights. The optional infrared illuminator provides excellent long-range IR performance with no speed restrictions on IR transition.
The HSL-1600 searchlight can be integrated with FLIR, moving maps and other mission equipment to provide a fully integrated slaving capability without the need for external components. For enhanced operational capability, the HSL-1600 can be equipped with up to three hand-held controllers with priority switching, laser pointers and integrated NVG filters.
The searchlight completed certification flight test on G-NSYS, the H135T1 test and trials helicopter owned by Nova Systems UK, GVH Aerospace’ sister company. The Nova Systems EASA Category 1 test pilots completed the flight testing under GVH Aerospace’ EASA Part 21J design approval in June 2016. This marked the final milestone for completion and issue of the STC by EASA, which will be imminently available. The H135T1 test and trials helicopter, fitted with HSL-1600 searchlight, is on display at the Farnborough International Airshow 2016 outside Hall 4 from 11th to 15th July 2016.
