Exotrail has signed a contract with AAC Clyde Space, to equip its customer Eutelsat with propulsion solutions for its ELO 3 and ELO 4 spacecrafts. Exotrail plans for the contract to be delivered before the end of the year, and both satellites are planned to be launched in 2021.

Exotrail, a French company that provides on-orbit transportation solutions for small satellites, plans to provide propulsion systems for the two 6U CubeSats which will be manufactured and delivered to orbit by AAC Clyde Space, a European nanosatellite solutions specialist. The Eutelsat mission is a precursor to Eutelsat’s potential constellation ELO (Eutelsat LEO for Objects).  

“[Exotrail’s] product is a perfect fit for both our needs and our customer’s requirements. Their modular ExoMG product has a highly compact and flexible form factor with industry leading performance levels, in particular with respect to thrust levels,” AAC Clyde Space CEO Luis Gomes said.
