spaceware™ is a family of high-thrust and flexible electric propulsion systems suited for all mission needs for satellites ranging from 5 kg to 1.000 kg. Whether you are looking to deploy a constellation, change the altitude or inclination of your spacecrafts, perform a RAAN phasing, maintain your orbit or avoid collisions, spaceware™ will meet your needs.

The Exotrail spaceware™ Micro XL Thruster is a 150W-class system developed for microsatellites. It offers high thrust and huge maneuver capabilities for microsatellites.

The thruster utilizes Xenon as a propellant and has a maximum total impulse of 52 kNs.

Its tilt is adjustable towards the center of mass to a wide extent with low thermal influence on the platform.

Key features

  • Space-proven system with performance demonstrated in orbit
  • Reaches optimal orbit faster than other electric propulsion technologies
  • Delivers high specific impulse of electric propulsion while maintaining very high thrust
  • Adaptable to specific mission profiles with a unique, modular design.
  • Configurable total impulse which can be modified using a different tank form factor
