Abstract
The LCCE-2 Program builds off the successes of the USAF "Low Cost Cryocooler Electronics for Space Missions" Program, extending the performance of the developed LCCE to include active vibration cancellation and advanced input power bus circuitry. The former is important for imaging payloads because the exported vibration from the cryocooler can be a major contributor to the overall image jitter. The latter will provide the ability to safely operate the cryocooler system off of virtually any spacecraft power bus from all perspectives, meaning that the cryocooler system will be protected from transient effects from a "dirty bus," and the cryocooler will not impart back onto the power bus large amplitude current ripple that would otherwise affect the performance of other devices on the bus.
