Balloon-Borne Cryogenic Telescope Testbed

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

The Balloon-Borne Cryogenic Telescope Testbed (BOBCAT) is a technology demonstration to develop advanced instrumentation for astrophysical observations at far-infrared wavelengths.[HTML_REMOVED] It develops cryogenic techniques as an enabling technology to improve far-IR sensitivity by a factor of 100,000 or more compared to current state-of-the-art instrumentation such as SOFIA.[HTML_REMOVED] Cryogenic spectrometers, operating at balloon altitudes, have game-changing capabilities, but achieving this goal while remaining within balloon payload mass limits requires ultra-light cryostats.[HTML_REMOVED] This project develops the ultra-light cryostat and demonstrates the ability to transfer cryogenic liquids at balloon altitudes.
