I am looking for a good reference for information on the design of the Portable Life Support System (PLSS) backpacks worn on the moon. Ideally info on how reliability was optimised and details on the sublimation system that would prove so effective.

I understand that Neil Armstrong used it as an example of system design when he was a professor of aeronautical engineering.
