Abstract
A cold plasma fuel processor developed as a fuel processor air breathing JP-8 solid oxide fuel cell APU systems, will be evaluated for suitability for UUV application with JP-10 and Navy logistic oxidizers. The system uses the waste heat from the fuel cell in the reformer, to reduce oxidizer demand and improve overall system efficiency and energy density. The combined JP-10 SOFC system has the potential to exceed by a factor of two the target of 150W-hr/lb system energy density on long duration UUV missions.
