Paper Abstract

Several thousands of 1st Gen IR Systems operated by Integral Stirling Cooler HD1033 are still in service worldwide. Replacing the HD 1033 Stirling by a Linear Drive Cooler will result in a significant reliability enhancement of these IR system of about a factor of three. These attempts had been unsuccessful in the past due to excessive EMI noise induced by the linear cooler compressor. So a main goal for such a development is the elimination of various EMI distortions in the IR system by EMI filtering and shielding. Additionally, the synchronization of the cooler power to the predominant scanning frequency of the IR system significantly improves the image quality. Technical details of the solution, MTTF data and performance data are described in detail.
