dc.description.abstract The Cryo System Experiment was developed to validate in near zero-g space a 65 K cryogenic system for focal planes, optics, or other imaging instruments that require continuous cryogenic cooling. Two key cryogenic technologies, designed to improve performance of systems for scientific, commercial and defense applications in space, were successfully demonstrated on a February 1995 Shuttle mission. The two were a 2-watt 65 K long-life low- vibration Stirling cooler and a diode oxygen heat pipe thermal switch. Lessons learned are presented. en_US
