Who We Are

OUR STORY

Spectral Sciences, Inc. was founded in 1981 by five coworkers with a shared vision of a collaborative research and development environment with a focus on physics, chemistry, engineering, and related fields. This evolved into a fully employee-owned organization where doctoral-level scientists join together to make exciting discoveries and bring insightful solutions to complex scientific problems.

Thirty-seven years later, SSI has become an internationally recognized resource hub for expertise in spectroscopy, remote sensing and imaging, and radiative transfer processes, among others. SSI’s scientists and engineers have built its foundation on extensive US government contract research and development, and are branching into commercial markets across multiple industries from defense companies to established technology organizations and start-ups.

From conception, prototype development, to field testing—the original vision of our founders is still alive today, as we work to bring clarity, insight, and innovation to advanced scientific technology solutions.


OUR TEAM

From their headquarters just outside of Boston, MA, the team applies their brain power on many levels. From the not-so-menial task of turning light into data, to actual rocket science, the team is often hard at work, doing what they love in their extremely collaborative work setting.
