Reliability of the SRG110 Stirling Convertor QuantifiedThe NASA Glenn Research Center has been involved in the development of Stirling power-conversion technology and is currently providing technical support to the Department of Energy and Lockheed Martin, of Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, their system integration contractor, for the 110-W Stirling Radioisotope Generator (SRG110). Stirling radioisotope power-conversion technology is a potential candidate for future deep-space science and exploration missions. The SRG110 has a multifold increase in efficiency and would reduce the inventory of the radioisotope fuel by a factor of 4 in comparison to systems used to power past missions.
