Abstract
This paper discusses the present status of development of rotary reciprocating refrigerators, which are closed cycle, cryogenic refrigerators specifically designed for cooling space-borne sensors on extended missions. Three machines will be described: a two temperature level Brayton cycle refrigerator which has been built and tested, a three temperature level Brayton cycle refrigerator which is in the early stages of development, and a two temperature level Stirling cycle refrigerator which is in the conceptual design stage.
