Science Systems and Applications, Inc. - Science and Technology with Passion

our History

SSAI celebrated its 42nd anniversary in 2019. A passion for science led to SSAI’s founding as a one-person company. From that humble beginning, SSAI has evolved as a business with a record of successful performance on more than 100 contracts awarded by federal agencies and research institutions. We have participated in more than 150 scientific missions, providing subject matter expert consulting in areas such as application of remote-sensing data to decision support systems, assessment and validation of specialized sensors, modeling and simulation of physical processes and systems, and program management. Throughout, SSAI has experienced steady growth, and has built a reputation for integrity and delivering high-quality services at reasonable costs.

SSAI has excelled in working as a collaborative partner with our customers in science, engineering, and information analytic endeavors, contributing to the publication of many hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific papers across an impressive breadth of disciplines. In particular, our scientists have contributed to improvements in our understanding of the processes that govern Earth and its changing environment, and those responsible for the evolution of the early universe. SSAI’s history inspires and propels our aspiration to continue to improve the quality of life through our research.
