Paper Abstract

The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) is a MIDEX mission that is being developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to address several of NASA's Astronomical Search of Origins (ASO) objectives. The WISE instrument, developed by the Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL), includes a cryogenically cooled telescope (at < 13K) and four focal plane assemblies (2 at 7.6K, 2 at 32K). Cooling of the instrument is accomplished by a dual-stage solid hydrogen cryostat that is developed by the Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center (LM-ATC). This paper provides a combined overview of the WISE cryostat design and thermal support system.
