Silicon Microgravity Limited (SMG) is a privately held company focused on developing and applying innovative technology primarily to improve surveillance, appraisal and production of oil and gas with additional application to CO2 storage, water management, mining and defence. Our technology has the potential to disrupt current practices in oil/gas production and advance reservoir surveillance so that our clients can achieve real efficiencies and cost savings while meeting their desired social, safety and environmental goals.

 SMG is based on over 10 years of research from the Cambridge University Nanoscience Centre in with the energy company BP PLC and has developed a unique high performance, ultra-sensitive, yet robust microelectromechanical system (MEMS). The MEMS technology consists of a 3 axis accelerometer with a projected resolution of approximately one billionth of the Earth’s gravity. SMG is also funded for and actively researching a related MEMS gyro technology with a potential application to inertial navigation. SMG has successfully completed a further investment round, allowing the company to commercialise its technology and grow rapidly.
