Paper Abstract

In-situ infrared detector cooling in an ambient air environment is a desirable feature for space-borne instruments. Many system-level tests can be conducted at reduced cost (as compared to vacuum chamber tests) if reliable, controllable spot-cooling of the detectors can be achieved using a "bench cooler". This paper describes a bench cooler designed for spot-cooling the infrared detectors of the Thematic Mapper (TM) instrument. The mechanical and thermodynamic design of the bench cooling system is presented along with system test results.
