Abstract : The object of this study was the construction and instrumentation of the cryostat designed by Captain Ernie Braunschweig (AFIT GNE-64 Thesis). The cryostat and associated helium supply systems were constructed. Instruments were designed to measure the various parameters of the experiments to be conducted with the cryostat. Instruments to measure temperature and liquid level have been constructed and tested. Biological shielding for use with the cryostat, in the reactor, has been designed. Some changes in the design were incorporated because of available fabrication techniques. (Author)
