Subitles over images :
ThrustMe
An ionic propulsion system for powering new
satelites.

Ane Aanesland
CEO of ThrustMe
CNRS/LPP Innovation

Interview :
The space industry is undergoing a major transformation.
We are moving from a world with a few large
satelites to many small ones operating in
constellations

Subitles over images :
ThrustMe enables a sustainable space industry by giving orbital mobility to these new satellites

Interview :
We provide space propulsion systems for these new satellites.
And we leverage fundamental research from the CNRS for more than 10 years.
We combine physics and technologies from both space and earth applications.

Subtitles over image :
ThrustMe has signed their first contracts and started the industrialisation process for multiple products

Interview :
Thes constellations of tens, hundreds or thousands
of satellites are the future of our digital and hyperconnected world.

Summary

Miniaturised low-altitude satellites represent the future of global connectivity and real-time Earth monitoring. #ThrustMe enables this new space industry to be economically and environmentally sustainable by developing and marketing electric propulsion systems, which will be on display during the fair. This start-up was founded in 2017, and emerged from the Laboratoire de physique des plasmas (CNRS/Ecole polytechnique).
