Custom cryocooler for IR sensors in space applications. A system a that can endure the extreme conditions of a rocket launch.
Demcon kryoz designed and fabricated a cryocooler for cooling IR sensors in space applications. This was done for the European Space Agency (ESA). The device matches specific space application requirements including:
- Cold stage can resist extreme mechanical vibrations (during rocket launch).
- Cooling power matches dissipation of IR sensor.
- Possibility to combine cryocooler with closed-loop sorption compressor.
