Abstract : A state-of-the art review is presented on the potential fuels and regeneration processes and current performance information on energy conversion devices. Several systems have been designed for the shelter power system as a method of establishing performance and system parameters that may be utilized in the future selection of a preferred concept. The total program schedule is outlined. With few exceptions all areas are proceeding as planned, and no major roadblocks have been uncovered which would materially alter the phase of action. A mission profile is required for the various lunar roving vehicles which can be utilized to evaluate the vehicle power system concepts and their effect on fuel logistic systems.
