SPIREX is ideal for extensive large-scale infrared and submillimeter surveys of star-forming regions in the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds.
SPIREX's telescope is 60 centimeters in diameter. The construction includes enhancements to lower the total telescope emissivity to just 5%. GRIM was a 128x128 NICMOS2 HgCdTe camera sensitive from 1-2.5 µm.
SPIREX/GRIM is based at the University of Chicago. For more information, contact Al Harper, firstname.lastname@example.org
