We are constantly growing
Joining the VITA Community
November 10, 2023
We understand that modularity in space technology is just the beginning. True progress in the space industry, as in any other, hinges on standardization. That's why we're thrilled to announce we are joining VITA, a leading organization dedicated to driving open standards in the technology sector. Our philosophy is clear: we want our customers to stay with us because they love our technology, not because they feel locked in. The freedom to choose and replace is a right we deeply respect. This principle guides our dedication to using and promoting open standards. By joining the VITA community, we're not just expanding our horizons; we're committing to a future where collaboration and knowledge-sharing lead the way. We look forward to a path of shared growth, innovation, and success, where our contributions to open standards help shape a more interoperable and dynamic space industry.
Environmental Tests Completed!
November 8, 2023
We are absolutely thrilled to share a monumental milestone that will accelerate ongoing and future conversations with prospective clients: the completion of our rigorous environmental test campaign. This is the battery of tests we ran this year: Proton testing, Total Ionizing Dose, Random vibration, Sinusoidal vibration, Shock, Thermo cycling, Thermo Vacuum, and Burn-in. These tests were designed to simulate the harsh conditions of space and ensure that our technology not only survives, but also operates flawlessly in that extreme environment.
Space Server Technology
August 1, 2023
The ability to store and process data in space is one of the next hot topics for the New Space economy. Grounded in technology we've already developed, our space server technology is emerging way before than that of any other company. Our N10501AV is a server engineered to endure the extreme conditions of the outer space, bringing to space the same level of cloud computing power available on the ground.

New synergies are surfacing in Luxembourg’s space ecosystem! We’ve signed an MoU with LuxSpace, an OHB company, to explore new technologies for future space systems. LuxSpace will contribute their vast experience in space missions and Novo will leverage its expertise in high-performance space electronics. We are excited for this new step forward in our Luxembourgish and European plan. Photo: LuxSpace CEO Edgard Milic and Novo Space CEO Rodrigo Diez sign the agreement.
Protecting our technology
March 10, 2021
Protecting our technology is as important as developing it! We are proud to announce that, a few months back, we filed a provisional patent for one of our key technologies. We are not protecting a circuit design, as similar functionality can be achieved with different circuits. What we are protecting is a new architecture that will allow us to save up to 30% of SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power) in future high-performance redundant space systems. Please, feel free to reach out to learn more about this core technology.
Novo Space is one of the "cutting-edge AI startups who are revolutionizing industries"
February 19, 2021
We were recently accepted into the NVIDIA Inception Program which, in their words, “nurtures cutting-edge AI startups who are revolutionizing industries”. This is key for us because some of the products in our roadmap will include an NVIDIA GPU for machine learning in space. The applications in space are unlimited, including constellation management and collision avoidance, natural disaster monitoring, communication networks reconfiguration, planet identification, weather monitoring, extreme data compression, payload data processing, onboard failure detection, sensor data fusion, and many more. Stay tuned to see how Novo's high-performance products unlock these and other computer-demanding applications in space.
High-Performance SmallSat Architectures
September 1, 2020
Have you already read our paper published in the SmallSat conference journal? Novo Space founders Rodrigo Diez and Facundo Jorge, MIT Prof. Kerri Cahoy, and SpaceVPX Working Group Chair Patrick Collier, wrote about standardization and modularity in High-Performance SmallSat Architectures.

Critical Design Review
June 24, 2020
We have been working in a project sponsored by BAE Systems and led by the MIT STAR lab for almost two years and we are happy to announce that we had our Critical Design Review (CDR) yesterday! We are very pleased to be working with BAE Systems, developers of the most successful satellite computer (RAD750), and MIT towards next-gen high-performance systems. We want to thank Lin Haas (BAE Systems) and Prof. Kerri Cahoy (MIT) for their leadership in the project. Also, special thanks to Francesca Scire-Scappuzzo, Susan Gonzalez, Michael McComas, Fang Liu, Ezinne Uzo-Okoro, and all other people at BAE Systems and MIT directly involved in the project or cheering for us in some other way.
Second USAF SBIR Phase I Grant
March 5, 2020
Novo Space has been awarded another USAF SBIR Phase I grant through the AFWERX program to explore the addition of novel features and capabilities in the space domain to Novo’s core product offering. The AFWERX program helps create ground-up innovation across the Air Force by engaging start-ups and non-traditional organizations.
USAF SBIR Phase I Grant
