The aim of this activity is to develop a 15K Pulse Tube cooler to Engineering Model (EM) level. This will include a flight like configuration of the coolers (brackets, buffer volumes) and an optimisation of the active phase shifter to minimise the input power required. In addition, a suitable EM Cooler Drive Electronics shall be developed to operate the 15K Pulse Tube, minimising the exported vibrations. The complete system shall undergo performance, environmental and lifetime tests.
