Abstract
The goal of this work is to design a space experiment that will evaluate the thermal savings on a cryogenic subsystem when manganin leads are replaced by the high temperature superconductor (HTS) leads printed onto a substrate with a low thermal conductivity. A conductive mathematical model has been developed and used as a key tool in the design process and subsequent analysis. The results indicate at least a 50% reduction in total heat load on the cryogen by replacing the currently used manganin wires with HTS leads.
