One of Tiger Optics’ analysing devices has played a critical part in NASA’s latest success of entering Jupiter’s orbit.
The company’s HALO trace-gas analyser played a crucial role in detecting contaminants that could have compromised the performance of scientific instruments in space.
The space-bound sensing instruments were designed to operate in the vacuum of space without oxygen (O2), water or particulate matter and as such needed to be protected under a flow of high-purity inert gas.
Tiger Optics’ HALO H2O analyser was chosen to measure the quality of nitrogen (N2) flow as it can measure any moisture in a range from two parts per billion (ppb) to 20 parts per million (ppm).
Tiger Optics Chief Executive Lisa Bergson was thrilled with the company’s role in the project and stated, “Tiger Optics is honoured that its technology is trusted to support our nation’s journey into the frontiers of space.”
The Juno spacecraft successfully entered Jupiter’s orbit on 4th July, capping its five-year journey from Cape Canaveral and by 2nd September, all eight instruments were successfully energised and began collecting data. Within days, NASA was able to publish the first-ever images of Jupiter’s north pole.
Tiger Optics will be discussing its latest progressions in the Internet of Things (IoT) in the upcoming edition of Specialty Gas Report.
Warrington, PA-based Tiger Optics LLC has announced that it was honored to participate in the process tied to the revision of a key semiconductor industry standard for monitoring moisture dry-down characteristics of gas delivery systems.
Tiger Optics, a US gas analyser manufacturer, has developed a gas analyser which it claims is the world’s most sensitive detector for moisture in ammonia (NH3).
