SpectraSensors, Inc., an Endress+Hauser Company, is headquartered in Houston, TX USA with Manufacturing in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and Atmospheric Program operations in the Washington DC area. 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 Water Vapor Measurements in ABOP.
