Paper Abstract

Cryocoolers are a key component for many spacecraft. We summarize some spacecraft cryocooler requirements and discuss our observations regarding the current production capabilities of cryocoolers. The MODIL's interaction with industry, especially throught the Producible Technology Working Groups is also summarized. The current Spacecraft Fabrication and Test MODIL's plans to improve producibility include working closely with industry, executing a demonstration project, and holding a workshop to bring key members of the current cryocooler development network together.
