LOS ALAMITOS, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2016) - NovaWurks™ Inc., a provider of high technology space products and services, has been selected as a 2016 FiReStarter company by the Strategic News Service™ and will be featured at the 14th Annual Future in Review (FiRe) Conference -- "the leading global conference on the intersection of technology and the economy" in Park City, Utah from Sept. 27 - 30. Talbot Jaeger, founder and chief technologist at NovaWurks, will be among this year's gathering of world-class thought leaders, with the goal of providing the most accurate look forward in technology. He will disclose how NovaWurks' Hyper-Integrated Satlet (HISat™) technology will revolutionize the space industry by providing access to "Space for Everyone."
"We are incredibly honored to have been selected this year as a FiReStarter and to be in the company of many technology pioneers," said Jaeger. "NovaWurks is pushing the boundaries of the NewSpace sector with our HISat technology, a disruptive technology opening up the commercial space market to all industries, entrepreneurs, and academic institutions who were previously blocked by the space industry's significant barriers to entry."
NovaWurks' HISat technology contains all of the functional capabilities of an autonomous satellite, in a small form factor, allowing the flexibility to conform to the shape or capability requirements of any payload. This biologically inspired technology that provides a foundation for building safe, rapid and cost-effective custom spacecraft around any payload for any commercial entity, is mass-produced and is flexible for a variety of mission purposes -- drastically decreasing the time and costs associated with traditional monolithic spacecraft solutions. SIMPL -- NovaWurks' first, self-funded satellite is currently awaiting deployment aboard the International Space Station, and the company's eXCITe spacecraft is scheduled to launch the fourth quarter of this year as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)'s Phoenix project.
"HISats are a game changer and present opportunities to disrupt the medium to large spacecraft sector while creating totally new markets for small to mid-sized business, entrepreneurs and academia," said Jaeger. "Less sophisticated space users can now assemble space platforms without the traditional 'need to know everything about space' know-how and still achieve high performing capabilities."
FiRe is a world leader in exploring how technology drives the world economy and in using technology to solve major social challenges. These goals have been consistently achieved through FiRe's collaboration across technology-driven industries and through active support from the global FiRe community.
