Active CryoCubeSat

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Active CryoCubeSat
The Active CryoCubeSat will advance active thermal control methods for CubeSats as well as miniature cryogenic coolers to enable electro-optical detector temperatures in the 75-100K ranges. The first stage of the cooling system will be a mechanical pumped fluid loop (MPFL) thermal control system followed by a pulse tube cryogenic cooler. Additive manufacturing will be used to integrate the MPFL within the CubeSat structure by facilitating embedded conformal coolant channels. More »
