Abstract
Triton Systems, Inc., proposes to transition a proof of concept cryocooler developed under the MDA STTR Phase I effort, to a miniaturized cooling system that will have commonality and reducibility to serve multiple MDA missions. The proposed cryocooler uses a novel standing wave design to achieve the miniaturization and low weight needed for MDA focal plane array cooling systems. This cryocooler offers a simpler and more rugged design, and together with the lightweight driver, it eliminates auxiliary elements used in conventional cryocoolers.
