Value Proposition: The value proposition to industry of the mLCCE is that it provides a cost-leveraged platform that is very versatile. The Cost leveraging comes in the form of design leverage and cost advantage value. The design leverage comes from the fact that the mLCCE is cryocooler agnostic, it can be used with a number of cryocoolers. This allows the mission designer to move forward with mission planning before a specific cryocooler has been selected. Because the mLCCE is not a point solution, programs will not have to pay for the recurring engineering usually associated with cryocooler electronics development. The cost advantage leveraging comes from the fact that the base mLCCE design is in itself derived from Iris Technology’s line of Low Cost Control Electronics systems. The versatility comes from the fact that the mLCCE could be tasked with other functions such as stepper motor control or DC to AC power conversion providing addition value to the industry.
