We consider models of extended gravity and in particular, generic models containing scalar-tensor and higher-order curvature terms, as well as a model derived from noncommutative spectral geometry. Studying, in the weak-field approximation (the Newtonian and post-Newtonian limit of the theory), the geodesic and Lense-Thirring processions, we impose constraints on the free parameters of such models by using the recent experimental results of the Gravity Probe B (GPB) and Laser Relativity Satellite (LARES) satellites. The imposed constraint by GPB and LARES is independent of the torsion-balance experiment, though it is much weaker.
