MEMS-based sensors for harsh environments

Colibrys has launched the new MS9000 family of inertial accelerometers specifically designed for harsh environment and safety critical applications. This new generation of products comes in a LCC20 (8.9mm x 8.9mm) ceramic package, some three times smaller than current sensors and in a variety of g ranges from ±2g to ±250g. These sensors can operate over extended temperature ranges with just a few milli g bias stability guaranteed over extended lifetime. These high quality sensors conform to MIL-STD-883-E as typically required by the aerospace, military and geophysical markets.

"These products have already been qualified by multiple preferred leading edge clients for AHRS, missile guidance and industrial applications, giving us strong confidence that the MS9000 is offering extremely competitive performance" commented Soheil Habibi, Business Development Manager for Inertial Sensing at Colibrys. "The smaller package size allows our customers to realize more compact and higher accuracy guidance and navigation systems especially in applications where performance and reliability are a pre-requisite." This new product allows Colibrys to underline its position as a leading edge independent European supplier of inertial sensors to the harsh environment and safety critical applications worldwide.
