NorthStar is off and running

NovaWurks To Provide Space Segment For NorStar Satellite Constellation.

NORTHSTAR, being developed by NSDI, is an information system that includes a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation of 40 satellites to provide unique data sets on the ecological systems of Earth and utilizes Space Situational Awareness technology to track objects in space. “The revolutionary cellular technology developed at NovaWurks enables considerable flexibility in the NorthStar space segment design and operation at significantly reduced cost,” said Stewart Bain, President and CEO of NorStar Space Data Inc. “We are motivated to include NovaWurks as a key member of our industrial team.”

This is a project I’ve been following for years. I’ve got a lot of old friends who have been working on getting funding for NorthStar, and in fact I even did some significant pro bono work for the project (initial CONOPS and Use Case development, plus some engineering trades) a couple of years ago. Glad to see that it’s finally got funding.
