On-wing Cryogen Generator

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a research program from the U.S. Army to lead a team to develop an airborne cryogen generator. The compact liquid cryogen production system will use extremely small turbomachines for all compression and expansion processes and additively manufactured compact heat exchangers for heat rejection and Joule-Thomson cooling. The use of industry-leading compact components with high efficiencies will lead to low system mass and will target the highest achievable production rate per unit system mass.
