NovaWurks is a provider of high-technology space products and services and the producer of the world’s only biologically inspired spacecraft. With NovaWurks’ breakthrough technology, HISat™-based platforms enable colleges and universities, commercial ventures, and agencies to envision and deploy affordable spacecraft built around their own payloads. The HISat “stem-cell-like” technology, developed in under three years, is unlike any other in the aerospace industry, providing production-line quality, rapid assembly, dynamic configuration, high resiliency, and lower costs. NovaWurks is positioned to become the choice among space innovators and adventurers who demand quality, flexibility, and performance on a cost-conscience budget.

NovaWurks’ team of scientists, engineers, educators, and artists invent, design, and create a broad range of innovations for customers, leveraging extensive and diverse backgrounds in spaceflight, education, consulting, and research work with decades of experience in managing complex, visionary projects for institutions and businesses of all sizes to realize their dreams of space applications and discovery.

“NovaWurks believes that everyone should have access to the latest tools and apps for the exploration and understanding of our planet and the surrounding universe. Now for the first time, Space is for Everyone!” said Talbot Jaeger, Founder and Chief Technologist of NovaWurks.

“The first time you see what NovaWurks has re-imagined for the new design of satellites, you think, ‘That’s amazing!’ The second time, you ask yourself, ‘Why aren’t all satellites made this way?’ I expect they will be. We are delighted to have NovaWurks with us as a FiReStarter this year and hope that other design teams are inspired by its work to include biological principles in the most advanced systems,” said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and CEO of the Strategic News Service.
