Abstract
Efficient design and evaluation of infrared cryogenic sensors that must operate in changing thermal and mechanical environments require using automatized data transfer among thermal, structural and optical computer programs. The thermal and mechanical environments during which the sensors must operate to specifications include Sinusoidal and Random Vibration, Steady State Acceleration, Shock Spectrum, thermal soaks and gradients. The design of infrared cryogenic sensors to system requirements involves trade-offs among structural, thermal, and optical requirements. These trade-offs are performed using our Thermal/Structural/Optical (T/S/O) integrated design analysis process. This T/S/O process permits us to perform iterative cost effective systems evaluations of alternate designs by efficient data transfer among thermal, structural and optical programs. Examples are presented showing how Honeywell Electro-Optics Center (EOC) has used the T/S/0 process to design sensors that are subjected to varying thermal and mechanical loads.
