ThrustMe is a deep-tech company in the space industry. We develop and manufacture smart and fully-integrated space propulsion systems for next-generation satellites. We also develop scientific instruments and conduct ground testing of space hardware, and we assist our clients when they need our expertise and experience in tackling thermal, mechanical and electronical challenges.
Imagine increasing the number of operational satellites in orbit by one order of magnitude in the next ten years – this is where we are currently headed! For space to remain sustainable with so many satellites, intelligent, constellation-friendly propulsion systems are, and will be, a necessity.
Years of research, and a significant number of unique high-tech solutions, have gone – and are still going - into our various products. Good ideas – inventions - don’t fall from the sky, they don’t arrive by luck – they are a result of combining curiosity with knowledge. Bringing them to life takes courage - the guts to not be mainstream and the audacity to upset the status quo.
ThrustMe was founded in early 2017, leveraging more than 10 years of applied and fundamental research at one of the most prestigious research centers in France; the Ecole Polytechnique and the CNRS. Today, we are a highly qualified and multidisciplinary team with expertise in plasma physics, space propulsion, aerospace engineering, fluid dynamics, thermal management, digital and power electronics, and chemistry.
