Pre-Summit Kickoff Briefing For 2016 Space 2.0 To Feature NovaWurks Founder

NovaWurks™ Inc. has announced that Talbot Jaeger, founder and chief technologist of the company, will participate in the 2016 Space 2.0  Pre-Summit Kickoff Briefing, “Earth Pixels: Extracting Actionable Insight from the Geospatial Data Tsunami.”

On Tuesday, April 26, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., Jaeger, along with other industry experts, will participate in a panel discussion regarding the “Impact of New Technologies on What Kinds of Actionable Data Can Be Extracted from Geospatial/Earth Observation.”

Held in the Silicon Valley, Milpitas, California, the April 26 Pre-Summit Briefing precedes the three-day Space 2.0 Summit profiling industry breakthroughs in space commercialization. The focus of Space 2.0 is to provide crucial information on the navigation of the quickly-evolving NewSpace ecosystem and how to understand interlocking business models and partnering strategies. With an impending approach of the massive amount of data to come, the Pre-Summit Briefing offers insight into the value of how this data can provide the potential of actionable geospatial-derived products and services for an entirely new set of business applications.

As a long-time industry veteran and space entrepreneur, Jaeger will offer an understanding of his company’s Hyper-Integrated Satlet (HISat™), a biologically inspired satlet technology that is the basis of NovaWurks’ second HISat-based spacecraft called “eXCITe” launching from nearby Vandenberg Air Force base in mid-July. The company’s SIMPL spacecraft was delivered unassembled to the International Space Station aboard the Orbital ATK Cygnus capsule on December 9, 2015. Once assembled, SIMPL will be the first commercial satellite assembled by astronauts aboard the international space laboratory.

NovaWurks provides space services for organizations to reach orbit using HISats, the company’s flagship technology platform. HISats are able to configure/aggregate to become a flexible and reliable spacecraft for a variety of mission purposes and provide a safe, rapid and cost-effective solution to reach space. The company is currently working on DARPA’s Phoenix Program, building satlet solutions for flexible, cost-effective satellite operations in GEO.

Space commercialization is on the brink of a massive shift where traditional aerospace and the new future of space development will provide untapped opportunities for a wide range of industries,” said Jaeger. “With new advances taking place every day, more and more possibilities will be available in the near future.”
