Oxygen is required by man for support of life and must be carried in a manned vehicle when insufficient oxygen is present In the external environment. In addition to oxygen, storage of atmosphere diluent gases (usually nitrogen or helium) Is also often required. However, for completeness, cryogenic storage of atmosphere gases for submersibles (submarines and undersea shelters) are also included in the following discussions.
