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. Instead, any organization with unique, experimental, or proprietary payloads can collaborate with NovaWurks to design a customized spacecraft to meet their mission objectives and budget, and then select a launch vehicle accordingly.
HOMOGENEOUS, INEXPENSIVE SATLET CELL
Every HISat™ is economically manufactured, with identical features and inherent capabilities. HISats are interchangeable, connectible, and replaceable.
Each HISat™ is capable of providing energy, metrology, navigation, processing, and communication functions. And each function can be turned on or off depending on the requirements of the spacecraft, the payload or the mission.
NO SWAP PENALTIES (SIZE, WEIGHT & POWER)
You don’t have to give up anything to reduce size, weight or power using HISats. Since each HISat™ is fully capable, demands of energy, metrology, navigation, processing, and communication can be spread out over the entire complement of HISat™ in a structure.
AGGREGABLE TO AN AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT
Individual HISats can be assembled into virtually any structure. With unique, patented connectors any number of HISats can be linked together to create a fully functional spacecraft capable of complex, interplanetary missions.
