Battlestations is a light SciFi-RPG. Great game. No magic. I believe there are some kind of Psi-Powers but simply ignore them and you are set.

"Run Out the Guns" is a RPG in the age of piracy by Iron Crown Enterprises. I know there is no magic in that game, as I own it. "Traveller" is an outer space RPG, I doubt there is magic in that one. You might be able to find other sci fi RPGs that also fit your description.

I haven't played it, but I believe Candamir: The First Settlers is RPG-ish

What do you mean by "RPG board game"? A game where you control an individual character and get equipment and become more powerful (through leveling up or something)? Or a game where you control a character who goes through an adventure?

Offhand, there's the above-mentioned, and:

Star Frontiers: Knight Hawks (sci-fi)

If you're open to RPGs proper, and not just RPGish board games, there's about 30 billion non-fantasy RPGs out there.

All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance... (Iain Banks)

It is not entirely clear what you are looking for, but I think Android or Battlestations are your best bet.

I used to play TOP SECRET about 25 - 30 years ago. Not sure if you can easily find a copy, but it was an enjoyable spy RPG.

Did you mean a RPG game that plays as a board game ? If you did you may want to try 'When Darkness Comes'. Modern day setting using modular boards, a GM (DM ?) is required but characters can level up based upon experience.

If you simply meant a RPG then the list is very long depending upon the genre you are looking for.
