Abstract
Altex and Pennsylvania State University (PSU) have teamed up to develop the highly integrated and highly efficient JP-5 driven Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Logistic Fuel Power System (UAVLFP). UAVLFP will build upon previous work that has shown the feasibility of conversion JP-5 to power and incorporates innovations to design and develop a flight worthy power system. Under the program the UAVLFP will be designed and validated by testing and analysis. The Phase I work will be the basis of Phase II under which a prototype UAVLFP will be developed and delivered to the Navy for high fidelity laboratory testing.
