Abstract

There are existing vibration isolation systems which limit a Free Piston Stirling Cycle (“FPSC”) on one specific orientation. In this invention, the FPSC can be in any orientation. Movable linkages are combined with the shock absorbing mount oriented parallel to the central axis of the FPSC. This allows the Stirling to be oriented at any angle. In any orientation, the weight of the Stirling can be resolved into a component in the x’ direction and a component in the y’ direction. The force in the y’ direction will be supported by the movable linkages. The force in x’ direction will be supported by the shock absorbing mount.
