Rapid Field Test Method(s) to Measure Additive Concentrations in Military Fuel
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Detection of fuel quality and fuel additive status in petroleum at multiple points in the fuel delivery chain is highly desirable in order to prevent military vehicles from being disabled by low quality fuel. Polaris Sensor Technologies will develop a small portable sensor comprising spectral, optical and electrochemical technologies which when combined produce a portable instrument capable of detecting a fuel additive concentrations and measure a number of fuel quality metrics. The fuel additive sensor requires no sample preparation and is expected to provide a sensitive measurement of concentrations of relevant military fuel additives. Polaris Sensor Technologies will partner contract Southwest Research Institute, recognized authorities in Fuel quality, to develop the Portable Fuel Additive Sensor.
