Our Stirling cryogenic coolers are suitable with defence applications such as embedded cameras, airborne and binoculars used for different kinds of applications (hand-held, armored vehicles, etc.). Our coolers are used for land, air and naval application systems.
Thales rotary monobloc Stirling coolers are particularly dedicated to systems requiring compactness, flexibility, robustness, high power or SWaP, different temperature levels (such as HOT), and higher reliability:
- RMs1 and RM2 coolers are especially dedicated to handheld and HOT applications where reliability and compactness are needed
- RM3 and RM4 coolers are particularly interesting solutions for embedded and fix applications where flexibility and robustness are required
Thales Linear Stirling and Pulse-tube coolers are designed for systems requiring high reliability, continues operation, long lifetime and higher cooling power. Systems wherein Linear Stirling coolers are used within the defence industry, include for example 24/7 observation and airborne applications.
