Civil Aerospace

In today's dynamic and challenging environment, Systron Donner Inertial (SDI) is known for agility, innovation, and commitment. SDI supplies the world’s highest performance MEMS Inertial Sensors & Systems. Our quartz MEMS products deliver a clear, continuously improving SWaPC advantage over alternative technologies.

The source of these advantages resides in advanced sense elements created from ultra-pure, monocrystalline quartz sensor material. Quartz’s exceptional strength and stability are complemented by strong piezoresistivity. Systron Donner Inertial’s micromachining fab creates stable, accurate Quartz MEMS sense elements. Key benefits to our customers are:

  • High precision and sensitivity
  • No known wear-out modes or recalibration, driving down life cycle cost
  • Industry leading signal/noise performance

Systron Donner Inertial products have no moving parts, no friction nor known modes of wear out and require no recalibration or rebuilding; they deliver industry-leading reliability under the most demanding conditions. Customers are served by dedicated engineering technology and manufacturing operations excellence operating under an AS9100 Aerospace Quality System Certification.

SDI provides leading technologies and systems; our gyroscopes, multi-axis systems, IMUs and INS/GPS systems are used for navigation, guidance, control, pointing and stabilization in commercial and military aircraft, unmanned autonomous vehicles, land vehicles, precision guided weapons, industrial mapping, specialty transportation and marine applications. SDI consistently delivers high results for customers striving to achieve complex objectives within aggressive time constraints and tough budgets.
