Abstract:

The military desires a multi-tank fuel inerting system to protect the craft from ballistic fire and accidental fires. Traditional systems have used either stored suppressants that are often heavy, costly, and create logistical resupply challenges or systems that produce an inert gas such as an on-board inert gas generating system that can generate an inert gas to fill the ullage during flights. The Navy desires an improved inerting system that can support multiple independent fuel tanks that does not use engine bleed air, uses a minimum of electrical power, and that can reduce the oxygen content in the tanks to less than 9% by volume. Toward this goal, Reactive Innovations, LLC proposes to develop an inert gas generator that can operate with multiple independent fuel tanks. During the Phase I program, we will develop an operational prototype system with a Phase II program producing a system that functions with larger aircraft multi-tank fuel systems.
