The only reference I found was to a NASA bill of materials that lists
that system as costing about $12k new in 1999.  Cross-referencing with
a similar "Periodic Table of the IRISes", that appears to be a high-end
O2, possibly with digital-only A/V, since that's the only workstation in
that price bracket.

Now, if NASA got a good discount, the system could be a low-end Octane.

That is an un-sucky 21" Trinitron.

That is an SGI SCSI array, possibly with hardware RAID.
