Exotrail is a space company based in France. We are developing mobility solutions for an agile space.

Our mission is to allow small satellite constellations to move in space, so that we can optimise 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 (ExoMG™), mission simulation and operation software (ExoOPS™), and orbital transfer vehicles (SpaceVan™). Exotrail has been created in 2017 and has secured over 20M€ since then from prestigious Venture Capital funds and public grants.

Our team is expanding quickly and consists, as of today, of +40 people who are passionate about disrupting the space industry. We operate out of two locations: Toulouse and Massy (suburb of Paris). But 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!
