axSense Technologies Inc. is a Canadian corporation engaged in the design and sale of high-performance accelerometers based on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (‘MEMS’) technology. axSense Technologies aims to commercialize a technology developed through a large-scale research project over nearly 5 years of intensive research. axSense has developed ultra-sensitive vibration sensors with unprecedented performance with a small footprint. These devices are so sensitive that they can detect vibrations of air or water molecules due to acoustic or sonar waves. The sensitivity of the device allows detection of whale sounds as far as 65km away from them!
MEET THE TEAM
axSense is a spin-off from Simon Fraser University where a team of 12 researchers developed the technology and brought it to the stage where it is ready for commercialization. The core team registered a company in 2017 with the goal of first product to market in two years.
