Creating Comprehensive Experiences for Mission Readiness

There is a lot of truth in the saying that "the best way to learn something is by doing it." But live training events are expensive, arduous, and can be dangerous or even impossible or impractical to carry out. Nova Technologies has a history of delivering innovative, high-tech simulation solutions that create highly realistic, immersive environments producing quality training at a fraction of the cost of live training.


We combine cutting-edge technology with quality engineering to create systems tailored to our client's specific needs. Our learning solutions implement an immersive operational environment designed to improve tactical behavior in an array of skills from accuracy and speed to stealth and analytical reasoning.



Nova Technologies has developed numerous training simulators and software solutions that focus on preparing our Warfighters for their toughest challenges, by developing real-world environments. Our simulations support ranges from scenario modeling and analysis to after-action-review.
