Abstract

In this phase I proposal GTL will leverage its experience in innovative composite tank design and production for spacecraft and propulsion systems in order to produce a high-performance composite torpedo fuel tank. GTL’s methods reduce tank mass by 60-75% over the state-of-the-art rocket systems. These rocket propellant tanks operate with corrosive fuels in harsh environments, have metal-to-composite structural interfaces, and are structurally load bearing. Fluid management and utilization are also critical in propulsion systems. GTL’s experiences and existing solutions will be applied to produce the MK48 replacement fuel tank.
