The positron source for the International Linear Collider (ILC) is dependent upon a ~200 m long helical undulator to generate a high flux of multi-MeV photons. The undulator system is broken down into a series of 4 m cryomodules, which each contain two superconducting helical undulators. Following a dedicated R&D phase and the construction and measurement of a number of short prototypes a full scale cryomodule has now been manufactured for the first time. This paper reports on the design, manufacture, and test results of this cryomodule.
