The Exotrail ExoMG™-micro-XL is a Hall Effect Thruster (HET) belonging to the ExoMG™-nano product line within the ExoMG™ product family. The ExoMG™-micro-XL is dedicated to microsats, offering a combination of high delta-v and high-thrust capabilities. The ExoMG™-micro-XL can give microsats the ability to perform quick, high delta-v manoeuvres and, hence, leverage the cheaper cost of a ride-share launch in place of an expensive dedicated ride. The ExoMG™-micro-XL can be customized to meet specific customer requirements, including multiple form factors.

The ExoMG™ product family includes a range of integrated HETs that address the needs of a wide range of platforms, from 6U up to 250 kg. Scalability is at the core of the ExoMG™ propulsion system product family and is a consequence of its modular design.
