Abstract

ICE has introduced an Integral Stirling Minicooler, the MC111, to operate with “integrated” cooler/dewar structures. Performance of prototype units is being measured at ICE and by various IR systems companies with platinum silicide, indium antimonide, lead selenide, and mercury cadmium telluride detector arrays. Results of tests on cooler capacity, power consumption, cooldown time, acoustic noise, and self induced vibration are presented.
