Space Cryocoolers

Sunpower offers the MT-S and CT-S cryocoolers for non-terrestrial applications.

As of Dec. 5th, 2018, there have been a total of 82 successful Sunpower cryocooler launches into space.  The Sunpower cryocooler in the RHESSI satellite was launched February 5th, 2002 and has been in continuous operation since.   We believe this speaks volumes about the robustness of the CryoTel line of cryocoolers.
