Software development

RedShift offers cost-effective software development combining the speed and flexibility of a small enterprise with the quality and processes of a high-reliability software developer.

Please contact us to discuss your software problem. Our first visit is always free of charge.


For more than 10 years RedShift has successfully developed small to medium size software applications. Key to this success is flexibility and responsiveness through a direct contact between developer and customer.

The absence of intermediate parties combined with the low RedShift overhead costs result in an attractive price setting.


RedShift software development features:

  • Experience with high quality space industry standards.
  • Multidisciplinary approach based on software development skills combined with experience in consumer and industrial product development and scientific instrument development.
  • Experience with software development methodologies and project management methodologies.
    RedShift tailors the methodology to your needs, avoiding an excess of technical documents costing time and money but always adhering to a high quality philosophy resulting in an efficient and maintainable product.
  • RedShift actively supports customers to establish a comprehensive set of user requirements, avoiding unnecessary development iterations which could cause planning and budget overruns.
  • Besides classical programming languages RedShift has an extensive experience with LabView and Matlab, which allows very fast development of industrial control and simulation software.

RedShift personnel is also available on a freelance basis to strengthen your team.
