Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-003
Budget: 05/14/02 - 02/17/03

Long life cryocoolers are needed to cool doped silicon focal plane arrays to 10 Kelvin. Simultaneous cooling at several higher temperatures is also needed for optical and thermal components that support these focal planes. Development of a multi-stage 10K cryocooler would greatly enhance the total cooling system's reliability and reduce its si...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-061
Budget: 03/27/00 - 04/23/03

A new method substantially reducing the required input power, weight and size of space cryocoolers is being developed. Power could be reduced by as much as a factor of four for some missions. This method employs thermal storage units (TSUs) that are added to existing constant heat load cryocoolers to provide expanded cooling capabilities for v...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-061
Budget: 04/02/99 - 04/10/00

Cryocoolers will be required to handle larger sensor heat loads in the future. These larger loads will also vary over time as the result of sensor duty cycles. These varying loads have brought about the concept of the Thermal Storage Unit (TSU). The TSU is added to the cooling system to average the heat load on the cryocooler. By averaging the l...
