In the development of the SPRITE——a new and widely used IR detector, the heat load of detector and dewar structures is an essential parameter for the cooler design. In this paper, the heat leakages produced by various heat transfer mechanisms of this structure are calculated respectively, and the total heat load was obtained. The results are analysed and compared with published data.
