Paper Abstract

Two long life mechanical cryocoolers for the ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) instrument of the EOS-A platform are intended to cool down infrared detectors for short-wave infrared and thermal infrared bands. The ASTER cryocoolers based on a split-Stirling cycle have to meet the requirements of a long operation life of 50,000 h and low mechanical vibration.
