Abstract
Background data, description and operation of various refrigeration cycles, performance data, and development potential have been summarized for a number of refrigeration concepts adaptable to spaceborne operations. Highlights of these various concepts are briefly defined, some of the more significant operating characteristics are indicated, and basic integration limitations with the entire spacecraft are outlined. Performance data and development potential are summarized. These are all presented with consideration of the primary factors for selecting an appropriate cooling system for long duration space applications.
