Project from Allied Cleanroom: IRIS - Nasa's New Satellite

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Jun 16, 2013

From NASA’s cleanroom in the Goddard Space Flight Center comes a new satellite that will be used to observe the sun. The IRIS (Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph) will be studying an area near the sun’s surface called the enigmatic region. As to be expected, this area is extremely hot (about 1.8 million degrees Fahrenheit) and has been tough to study.

“IRIS will extend our observations of the sun to a region that has historically been difficult to study,” says Joe Davila, IRIS project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “Understanding the interface region better improves our understanding of the whole corona and, in turn, how it affects the solar system.”

The IRIS has a host of on- board tools for observation, and one of the most important tools is the high resolution camera. This camera will capture images that are detailed enough to see areas that are about 150 miles across on the sun. The IRIS will also be gathering data about velocity, temperature and density.

About Allied Cleanrooms

Allied Cleanrooms creates custom modular cleanrooms ranging from Class 10 (ISO 4) to Class 100,000 (ISO 8). Our modular construction clean rooms are used for the following: Environmental Test Chambers, Pharmaceutical Storage Rooms, Temperature Controlled Rooms, Bio-Safety Labs, Pharmaceutical Research Labs, Stem Cell Research Labs, Server Rooms, Organic Chemistry Labs, Laser Rooms, Microbiology Labs, Nutraceutical Facilities and Dry Rooms. Additionally, our rooms comply with USP 797 standards and requirements.

We've been building cleanrooms for over 20 years, and we've served host of large clients such as Johnson Controls, Boeing, Atomic Energy, Saint Gobian, GE, Bremo NA, Fermilab National Accelerator Laboratory, Jet Propulsion Laboratories. Allied Cleanrooms posses a talented staff of in house designers and engineers that offer limitless design capabilities. We can construct clean rooms to be hard permanent structures or soft, flexible, re-locatable structures depending on your needs.

Allied Cleanrooms offers a turn key solution that starts with building your cleanroom to your exact specifications. If you require an installation of your clean room, but don't want to have to worry about subcontractors, we offer factory trained installers. Our teams of factory trained certified installers endure weeks of rigorous construction and safety training and emerge experts in modular building construction. Installers are also certified forklift drivers and equipment operators.
