NOVA Corporation’s Manager of Business Strategy and Strategic Development, Brian Conroy, wowed the crowds at the Department of Homeland Security Technology Showcase in Washington, D.C. on May 19th, 2016. Conroy demonstrated NOVA’s FIST (Field Information Support Tool) solution and showed how it will support the Arctic Domain Awareness Center (ADAC) and the Community Based Observing Networks (CBON). FIST is a commercial-off-the-shelf smartphone and web-based Knowledge Management System that advances the power of data fusion and knowledge creation for a wide variety of mission sets to include military, law enforcement, governance, and humanitarian missions. FIST was developed by Kestrel Technolgy, LLC, a teaming partner with NOVA Corporation. To learn more, visit NOVA Corporation’s Solutions page and click on the FIST tab.

Faulty communications along U.S.-Mexico border are America’s blind spot
“The intelligence aspect is that the local and federal law enforcement officers need to look at things from a risk-management perspective,” said Brian Conroy, Business Strategy and Strategic Development Manager at NOVA Corporation, which works with Kestrel Technology Group, the company that has produced the FIST system. “They need to find the high-risk areas [along the border], and if you have a tool that collects data and runs algorithms against it, you can conduct risk assessment and trend analyses. Human intelligence contributes to a holistic common operating picture.”

NOVA Corporation employees donated portions of their paychecks this Christmas to the Navajo United Way. The Navajo United Way goes beyond temporary fixes to create lasting change in communities on the Navajo Reservation. This is achieved by bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions regarding education, income and health. The donations are part of NOVA’s annual Keshmish (Christmas in Navajo) Drive. Each Christmas NOVA selects a worthy cause and gives employees a chance to contribute through monetary and other donations. Navajo-owned NOVA Corporation is honored to be able to assist the Navajo United Way this year.

NOVA has donated its refurbished laptops to the Adolescent Care Unit at Tséhootsooí Medical Center in Fort Defiance, Arizona. The Adolescent Care Unit is a 12 bed facility for at risk youth, ages 13-17, with psychiatric and/or substance abuse issues.
The majority of the patients at the Adolescent Care Unit (ACU) do not have access to computers or the internet in their respective communities. The donated laptops will be utilized by in-patient Navajo students, many of which have dropped out of school and are now making efforts to further their education. With these laptops, students can earn credits though an online recovery program.
NOVA donated the laptops as part of its mission to give back to the Navajo Nation. NOVA’s Interim CEO, Clara Pratte, said, “We aim to increase educational opportunities for Navajo youth so that they can branch out and become business leaders for the next generation. We provide scholarships and internships for them. Donating these laptops falls right in line with what we hope to accomplish, and it’s truly a pleasure to share this gift with the Adolescent Care Unit at Tséhootsooí Medical Center.”
