SpectraSensors, Inc., an Endress+Hauser Company, is headquartered in Houston, TX USA with Manufacturing in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and Atmospheric Program operations on Florida’s east coast. SpectraSensors is the leading global provider of laser-based analyzers used in atmospheric monitoring, natural gas, and petrochemical processing. SpectraSensors products ensure reliable measurements with the highest levels of data quality and a low cost of operation using Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) technology that has been proven in the harshest real-world environments. Thousands of SpectraSensors’ solutions are successfully deployed around the globe measuring gas concentrations in a variety of applications such as environmental, aviation, energy, and petrochemical processing.
For HydroMeteorological applications SpectraSensors produces the Water Vapor Sensing System, second generation, WVSS-II, enabling high quality atmospheric Water Vapor Measurements from commercial and research aircraft platforms. WVSS-II is certified for use in commercial aviation on multiple aircraft types and by multiple civil aviation authorities. WVSS-II is used globally by National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and their partner airlines as a component of the WMO Aircraft Based Observations Programme (ABOP). Approximately 180 commercial aircraft have been equipped with WVSS-II to report real-time data into the global ABOP systems. Independently evaluated, verified, and proven over years of operational use, WVSS-II is the most sustainable solution for In-Situ Upper Air Water Vapor Measurements in ABOP.
