Cryogenics

Capabilities

Redstone Aerospace has a highly skilled and diverse engineering staff with expertise ranging from design of industrial cryogenic facilities to complex systems for defense applications.  Our experience spans over 60 years of work with cryogenic systems, from state-of-the art cryocoolers to fluid storage and facility engineering.  Our core competencies include:

  • Mechanical Design
  • Structural Analysis
  • Control System Analysis
  • Piping System Design
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Chemical Process Engineering

Our Joule-Thomson (J-T) cryocooler applications include space and tactical systems, sensor testing and laboratory use. We have single-stage and multi-stage cold heads operating at 10K, 35K, 80K, and 120K using helium, neon and nitrogen.  Our custom cryostat designs have ranged from a 70 liter LHe cryostat for a single sensor to an 8’ tall, 1000 liter LHe cryostat having seven 19” telescope bays.  Each was designed to meet stringent thermal performance, weight and vibration requirements.
