Company Summary

NOVAWURKS is leading the movement away from the traditional approach to hosted payloads with the Conformal Spacecraft™. Based on our modular HISat™ platform – the Conformal Spacecraft™ conforms to the shape and capability requirements of the payload, rather than the bus. The result is a reduction in the high cost and technical restrictions of traditional hosted payload providers, and the availability of a cadre of revolutionary space services
