Abstract
This paper presents the on-orbit performance of the Cryogenic Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer (CLAES) cryostat through the mission, and compares its performance to pre-launch predictions for lifetime and for temperature vs. time for the CLAES cryogenic subsystems. Absolute temperatures of various subsystems in the instrument are presented along with temperature gradient discussions and their correlation to predictions of mission lifetime. The cryostat's thermal performance during ground operations, at spacecraft integration and during launch preparations at the Kennedy Space Center are also presented.
