Our Story

​​SciChart was born from necessity. Andrew Burnett-Thompson, our founder, while working on 3D positioning of underwater objects using ultrasound found that, despite having built the hardware and software he required to do this, he was still missing a chart control that could draw a large amount of data. So, as all good engineers do, he wrote his own software to do just that. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Early versions of SciChart were able to draw up to 1 million data points, and, having blogged about the process and presented a few demos, companies were soon contacting Andrew to find out when the software would be ready. He then built a website integrating e-commerce, and the first version went live in March 2012. Not long after, SciChart had its first customer. In its first year, it sold almost $200,000 of software licenses at approximately $599 per license. All the money was re-invested into hiring staff to help develop and maintain it, and new features and improved performance quickly followed.

To date, SciChart has served over 10,000 customers, won industry and national awards.. It continues to grow year-on-year, bringing in new high-level clients in industries including aerospace, medical, oil & gas, elite motorsports, industrial automation, banking, crypto and more. During this time, SciChart has also given free licenses to hundreds of universities, including Stanford, MIT, Imperial College and more.
