Thermal analysis and testing of a spaceborne passive cooler

Abstract:

This thesis describes the thermal design and thermal testing of the development model radiative cooler for the Composite Infra-Red Spectrometer (CIRS) due for launch on the Cassini spacecraft in 1997. The radiative cooler is used to cool the instrument's Focal Plane Assembly (FPA) to approximately 80K. The FPA holds two arrays of HgCdTe detectors for the mid infra-red spectrometer of the instrument which covers the wavelength range 7μm to 17μm. The FPA is mounted from the optics on a titaniu...
