Title: Cryogenic pressurized storage with hump-reinforced vacuum jacket

A cryogenic hydrogen storage vessel includes an outer vacuum vessel, a reinforcement ring on the outer vacuum vessel, an inner pressure vessel inside of the outer vacuum vessel, and a vacuum space between the outer vacuum vessel and the inner pressure vessel. One embodiment of the cryogenic hydrogen storage vessel includes an outer vacuum vessel; a hump-shaped reinforcement ring on the outer vacuum vessel, the hump-shaped reinforcement ring including an external hump portion that protrudes from the hump-shaped reinforcement ring and an internal recess in the hump-shaped reinforcement ring; an inner pressure vessel inside of the outer vacuum vessel, a vacuum space between the outer vacuum vessel and the inner pressure vessel, and a composite support ring in the vacuum space extending from the hump-shaped reinforcement ring on the outer vacuum vessel to the inner pressure vessel, the composite support ring nested in the recess in the hump-shaped reinforcement ring.
