About Us

Exotrail is a French based start-up disrupting the space industry and is at the forefront of the new global space movement. Over the last 10 years, the cost of access to space has been divided by 1000. Private companies are investing billions of dollars to develop constellations of small satellites to deliver Internet everywhere, IoT communication and very high revisit rate Earth observation services. Small satellites are fundamentally changing the way we operate in space.

Our vision at Exotrail is to be a pioneer in this global movement and help build an agile space. We are developing propulsion and operation technologies for small satellites and have the smallest Hall Effect Thruster in the world. Thanks to our electric propulsion system and unique operation software, our small satellites can change their orbit after launch - this new agility increases performance whilst lowering costs.

Exotrail launched in 2017 and has secured over 6M€ from prestigious Venture Capital funds and public grants. Our team consists of over 20 engineers, scientists and individuals who are passionate about disrupting the space industry. We operate out of two locations: Toulouse and the Massy region of Paris.

We believe this is only the beginning. Small satellites equipped with propulsion will be able to deliver new space services and will entirely disrupt the space industry by servicing, repairing, assembling and manufacturing spacecrafts directly in orbit. Join us and be part of our great ambition!
