Sporian Plans Big Breakthrough with Small Device : Single Chip Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Environmental Sensor Suite

March 1, 2002 - BOULDER, COLORADO

The Department of the Army has announced that Sporian Microsystems, Inc. has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grant to begin development of a Single Chip Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Environmental Sensor Suite.

The objective of the SBIR project is to design and develop a low cost, MEMS-based, multi-sensor "suite" consisting of 3-axis shock, temperature and humidity sensors, all operating on a single microchip. The work will be performed through a partnership between Sporian Microsystems and Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems-Eagan, MN that will take advantage of the two companies combined knowledge base in MEMS design, fabrication, integration, subsystem design, and packaging.

The technology will provide a low cost, low power environmental sensing/monitoring device that could be used in a wide range of military and commercial applications involving long and short term storage of sensitive equipment, manufacturing process control, status monitoring in automotive applications, food/perishables health monitoring, and HVAC systems.
Sporian is already working to perfect a method to "self-assemble" three dimensional MEMS structures as described their June 2001 Announcement.  The self-assembly project is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

The Department of Defense's SBIR program funds early-stage R&D projects at small technology companies that have the potential for commercialization in both commercial and/or military markets.


Sporian Microsystems, Inc. is a MEMS research and development company providing solutions based on MEMS technology and electronics packaging expertise.
