Abstract:

Given the high pressures required to micro-atomize logistics fuels, we believe the smallest and safest Micro-Atomizing Logistic-Fuel Delivery System can be achieved by using a pre-combustion vaporization strategy. State-of-the-art capillary pumps can gasify high-viscosity liquid fuels with sufficient velocity to design a passive air-entrainment system. A device based on capillary pump technology can meet the target 300 watts, "deck of cards" size requirement with a relatively small amount of startup thermal energy. An on-board battery-powered heater will be used for start-up in cold conditions. An MSR capillary pump micro-atomizer can be adapted to power a wide range of combustion driven, man-portable applications for the Objective Force Warrior.
