OHB Luxspace inks contract with Exotrail for ExoMGTM electric propulsion system onboard Triton-X Heavy platform.
Exotrail signed a contract with Luxembourg-based satellite manufacturer OHB Luxspace for a co-
engineering phase aiming the further integration of ExoMGTM – cluster2, a configuration of Exotrail’s high
thrust and flexible electric propulsion product family, into the Triton-X Heavy platform.
This co-engineering phase comes as part of the development of a next generation of multi-mission
microsatellite platform by OHB LuxSpace, in the frame of the ESA’s programme of Advanced Research
in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES), to enable affordable regional and global LEO satellites
On this occasion, Sébastien Duménil, Exotrail’s Chief Commercial Officer comments: “We are thrilled to
be embarked into Triton-X Heavy project, a microsatellite European flagship program and to welcome
OHB Luxspace into ExoMGTM fast growing customer base. This first contract paves the way of future
large constellation deployments for which in-space mobility and manoeuvrability become a critical
ExoMGTM, and its nano, micro and cluster product configurations, is Exotrail space-proven Hall-Effect
electric propulsion system for satellites ranging from 10 to 300 kg. Thanks to its high level of thrust and
modularity, ExoMGTM drastically improves satellite deployment, increases service performances and
contributes to reduce space pollution. ExoMGTM has already been selected by commercial and
institutional customers in Europe, Asia and North America (CNES, AAC Clyde Space, ESA, YORK
SPACE SYSTEMS and others) whereas ExoMGTM – cluster2 is a system configuration baselined on 3
different microsat platforms for both LEO and cislunar missions.
Exotrail is a France-based space company which designs, develops, and operates mobility solutions for
an agile space. Our mission is to allow small satellites to move in space, so that we can optimize their
deployment, increase their performances, and reduce space pollution. Thanks to this, a new world of
telecommunication, earth observation and space exploration will arise. Our mobility solutions range from
highly flexible high-thrust propulsion systems for small satellites (ExoMGTM), mission simulation and
operations software (ExoOPSTM), and In-Orbit Services (SpaceVanTM). Exotrail has been incorporated in
2017 and has secured since then over 18M€ from prestigious Venture Capital funds and public grants.
Our team consists of +50 people who are passionate about disrupting the space industry. We operate
out of two locations: Toulouse and Massy (suburb of Paris) in France.
