SPIE-DSS 2011 – Lifetime testing results and diagnostic performance prediction of linear coolers at Thales Cryogenics
Thales Cryogenics (TCBV) has an extensive background in delivering long-life cryogenic coolers for military, civil and space programs. During the last years many technical improvements have increased the lifetime of coolers resulting in significantly higher MTTF’s. Lifetime endurance tests are used to validate these performance increases. An update will be given on lifetime test of a selection of TCBV’s coolers.
