EXOTRAIL DELIVERS ITS FIRST HALL EFFECT PROPULSION SYSTEM PROTOTYPE FOR IN-ORBIT DEMONSTRATION MISSION

Exotrail has delivered a Hall-Effect propulsion system demonstrator to NanoAvionics, a nano-satellite manufacturer and mission integrator based in Lithuania.

NanoAvionics and Exotrail partnered to integrate Exotrail’s propulsion system into its M6P nanosatellite bus which is scheduled to be launched by the beginning of 2020 on a PSLV rocket.

Exotrail along with its key supply chain partners has fully designed, built, integrated and qualified a Hall-Effect propulsion system demonstrator, in the space of only 10 months. This unprecedented high-speed roll-out of an electric propulsion solution has been made possible thanks to the amazing involvement of their investors, key partners and dedicated staff in Massy and Toulouse.

Exotrail expects to release the first results from this demonstration mission during the first half of 2020. The software developed by Exotrail (ExoOPS™) for mission design and operation will serve as a key propulsion ground segment element for the mission. Future demonstration and customer missions are scheduled for 2020 and 2021 on 6U, 12U and microsatellites. Exotrail next objectives are to complete the life test qualification of its products in 2020 and ramp-up its production output to cope with current demand.
