For over 35 years, SDI has designed and manufactured industrial-grade surface mount accelerometers for military, inertial, defense, industrial, and R&D applications.  SDI began with an SBIR award in the mid-1980s for a Star Wars program radiation-hardened accelerometer and went on to develop the industrial-grade MEMS DC accelerometers preferred by most defense programs.  Visit SDI's SBIR Awards page to see a list of SDI's 25 completed SBIR awards.
