Having any particles or residue on a component part of a satellite or spacecraft has the potential to degrade the performance of the system. The cleanroom, therefore, filters out unwanted particles by feeding in HEPA-filtered air in through air vents and drawing away dirty air through floor-level vents. The cleanroom is also kept at a positive pressure that prevent the ingress of outside air. It provides a clean environment for assembly, integration and testing of CubeSats.
Some of the noteworthy equipment under this facility are:
- ESD equipment
- Power supplies
- Laminar flow benches
