A true passion for science led to SSAI’s founding as a one-person company.
From that humble beginning, SSAI has grown organically to the nearly 1000-person organization it is today. SSAI founders Om and Sara Bahethi have worked over the past four decades to create and maintain a company culture that supports a spirit of scientific exploration and innovation, respect for our planet and its environment, and a desire to make things better for humankind.
The family-centered values that were so important at our company's beginning remain a central part of SSAI’s current company culture. These values are reflected in the way SSAI leadership treats its employees and how employees are expected to treat each other and our customers. This enduring culture allows SSAI to attract and retain highly qualified scientists, engineers, programmers, and researchers to support our customers' most challenging missions and achieve their loftiest goals.
