Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-136
Budget: 12/04/12 - 03/04/15

ABSTRACT: Air and space gimbaled Infrared, multi-spectral, and hyperspectral sensor systems require cryogenic cooling to operate. Current cryogenic systems are inefficient, costly, subject to vibrations, are typically the high-maintenance portion of a sensor system, and take up a considerable amount of size, weight and power (SWaP) onboard air a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-136
Budget: 11/01/11 - 08/06/12

ABSTRACT: The proposed low-temperature, low-cost cryocooler meets a need for lower temperatures required by emerging airborne applications. Airborne platforms are adding infrared and hyperspectral sensors, which require cryogenic cooling to less than 77 K, in some cases as low as 25 K. The current state-of-the-art commercial/military cooler is d...
