Sagem acquires MEMS-specialist Colibrys SA

Sagem has acquired the Swiss company Colibrys SA, specialized in high-performance micro-sensors (acceleration and vibration) based on silicon MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) technology.

Colibrys has developed world-class expertise in this market, and is a leading supplier to the energy, robotics, defense, automotive, rail, instrumentation and infrastructure sectors. It is also a long-standing partner to Sagem, which uses Colibrys' precision accelerometers in a wide range of systems chosen by today's leading aircraft manufacturers (Airbus, Bombardier, Dassault Aviation, Eurocopter, HAL, etc.).

Through this acquisition, Sagem expands its technology portfolio for navigation and stabilization solutions, building on its expertise in inertial sensors, gyros (mechanical, laser, fiber-optic and vibrating) and accelerometers (pendulous and vibrating).

Colibrys has about 70 employees and annual sales of 12 million euros. It works closely with customers and partners in both Switzerland and international markets. Furthermore, the company is building brand-new facilities in Yverdon-les-Bains (Vaud Canton).
