From the heart of a hurricane to the halls of high tech, our technologies endure the extreme so that our planet doesn’t have to.
For close to a century, Vaisala has measured the slightest shifts in environments, even in the harshest conditions. We are committed to helping our clients make wiser choices for their business and the planet. And when doing that, they will not settle for good enough – not when great can save energy, resources, and ultimately, lives.
Our success is based on our technology leadership, from measurement sensors and instruments to the latest artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. Our offerings for measuring weather, environmental, and industrial conditions and processes include hundreds of product families and thousands of products.
Close to a third of our employees work in research & development, based mainly in Finland, France, the US, and Canada.
Our R&D center in Vantaa, Finland, hosts close to 300 scientists, engineers and solution seekers passionate about creating high-tech with a purpose.
We research, develop and manufacture our sensors in our own cleanroom in Vantaa, Finland. We also manufacture polymers for our sensors in our own polymer laboratory. Sensor wafers spend up to three months in the cleanroom, and during this time they undergo more than 100 statistical process control measurements.
You don’t really send a repair technician to space. That’s why the NASA Mars rovers Perseverance and Curiosity are equipped with Vaisala’s humidity and pressure sensors. Known for its long-term stability and accuracy, our space-proof tech is successfully measuring on two planets.
In addition to our own research and development work, we are an active player in the scientific community. We collaborate with the leading research institutes and universities to advance studies related to environmental and industrial measurements across various scientific and technological fields. Our collaboration partners also include the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as well as several national meteorological offices around the world.
We are an active participant in United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization (WMO). WMO coordinates the study of the state and behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere, including the weather and climate. It also facilitates its members’ observational networks and free, unrestricted exchange of data and information. In addition, WMO supports research to optimize the production of weather, climate-, and water-related services worldwide.
