Technology is just the beginning
When you have to rely on sustained accuracy in the harshest environments, when system safety is not an option, when you need irreproachable continuity of supply for long periods of time, Colibrys is always the answer.
The most accurate MEMS
Here at SAFRAN Colibrys, we always aim to push the limit of accuracy. Our 25 years of experience in the field has enabled us to offer the most advanced portfolio of accelerometers. Our experts in MEMS design are currently defining the next generation, with their efforts being driven by one vision: that MEMS will replace legacy technologies, delivering incredible benefits in terms of size, power, cost and reliability.
Tougher is better
MEMS made by SAFRAN Colibrys are tough by nature: their design is defined by simplicity, with lots of proprietary details to enforce performance durability and 25 years of work with the most demanding customers. Once you have the opportunity of testing a Colibrys MEMS under real-life conditions, you will know just how different we are.
Reliability is a must
Reliability starts when you first meet us, when you face our field application engineers who hold a full product history in their hands, with everything from qualification data to in-service behavior. With over 8 million high performance MEMS delivered so far, and with some of them in high-demanding, safety critical applications, we have complete control over what we do. As such, most of our business relationships with our customers are defined by long-term partnerships.
Everything revolves around the Customer
We convince our customers by helping them to understand, experiment and build their trust. They need a partner who will understand beside them long-term, a lasting partnership that benefits the evolution of both parties. We respond by having our full organization involved and geared towards making our customers feel confident in their present and their future. Our Field Application Engineers, in particular, are renowned for their response times and quality. Call us, test us, stress us!
The power of an international Group
Born from the Swiss hub of technologies, the renowned Centre Suisse d’Electronique et Microtechnique (CSEM), Colibrys has matured from 2001 as an independent world leader in high-performance MEMS.
Colibrys was acquired in 2013 by the Safran Group, an international high-technology group. Colibrys’ core competencies in MEMS design and manufacturing have been recognized and valued by one of the leading players in systems and equipment for Aerospace (propulsion, equipment), Defense and Security. Operating worldwide, Safran has over 66,000 employees and logged sales of 14.7 billion euros in 2013.
The Safran Group is comprised of a large number of companies and holds the top world or European positions in its field, whether by itself or with its partnerships. Safran undertakes extensive Research & Development programs to keep pace with its fast-evolving markets, including expenditures of 1.8 billion euros in 2013. Along with Safran, Colibrys sees its future in bright colors and is quickly maturing in fields like operational excellence, quality management and control of supply and deliveries over long periods of time. Innovation is now at the heart of our business: with Safran’s expertise, we are working to replace legacy technologies with MEMS in the most demanding applications for markets such as Aerospace, Energy, Automotive, Seismic detection and imaging, as well as for the most demanding industrial applications.
Together, we are building a world in which MEMS are the future.
