CSEM will help develop 3D-printed pipes for CEN particle detectors and the international space station.
Providing the clearest view possible
Scientific instruments have become more complex than ever, in line with the dramatic advancements in technology over the past decade. Keeping ahead of these developments is what we do: developing, designing, and simulating complex, high-precision systems for space, industrial and manufacturing applications as well as international science missions.
We have specialized in flexure structure technology for high-precision space and terrestrial applications, as well as time and frequency systems, for over thirty years. That’s why our solutions are used within prestigious space programs organized by NASA, ESA, and international observatories.
Our solutions ensure you can achieve submicron resolution and measure key variables in any environment, no matter how harsh, including cryogenic and vacuum environments. Here are some examples of what we develop and manufacture:
Our long-term investment in instrumentation helps meet the evolving demands of astrophysics, space exploration, space-based systems, watchmaking, metrology, and industrial instrumentation. By mastering and combining multiple disciplines in a systemic approach, we are paving the way towards a wide range of new space, watchmaking, industrial and medical instruments.

The spirit of collaboration that CSEM has shown has been excellent and I would specifically like to commend the center.
RUAG Aerospace has come to fully appreciate CSEM's experience and high level of competence in the design and simulation of high-precision space mechanisms integrating flexible structures.
The project was conducted with a very constructive attitude. Continuous and strong communication was always present and was a key success parameter. Measos [project which leads to WisioScope S] is considered as an example for future projects.
CSEM is by far the best company we have worked with in the past 20 years. We not only recommend them without reservation.
We have a very positive experience of working with CSEM for the European Space Agency, which is why we wanted it to develop the corner cube mechanism, a key element of our interferometer, for MTG’s new kind of meteorological instrument.
CSEM has many years of knowledge and experience in designing moving mechanisms that perform reliably, frictionlessly, and with a precision of a few micrometers, which is a key performance characteristic of the instrument. Thanks to this know-how, the CLUPI has the potential to discover past life on Mars.
CSEM and Orolia Switzerland have had a long and successful partnership. Our ongoing project with CSEM is the development of a Chip Scale Rubidium Oscillator to complete Orolia's mRO-50™ product line. Thanks to CSEM's MEMS expertise and micromachining facilities, Orolia Switzerland will now be able to access new types of markets and provide our clients with affordable and reliable components based on the latest technologies.
In our effort to make space sustainable, CSEM is a strong ally, offering years of experience in the space application field. Currently, in the framework of the ClearSpace-1 Service, our team has very different projects in robotics and navigation with CSEM. Their expertise, pragmatism and diligence allow us to advance ClearSpace's cutting-edge in orbit servicing.
Thanks to the support of CSEM, we succeeded in optimizing the coupling of two independent oscillators. A milestone in the history of watchmaking.
