Fuel is critical to any military operation. Preserving fuel that is stored and transported to the battlefield is critical to maintaining a high level of operational effectiveness. A very significant amount of fuel is recovered from aircraft during maintenance. Fuel that has been compromised as a result of age, equipment failure, or accident could contain any number of contaminants including moisture, dirt, soot and oil. Mainstream Engineering is using an innovative combination of components to create a low-cost, low-maintenance, portable fuel filtration system. The system will be integrated with a sensor to ensure that the fuel meets all applicable quality requirements. In Phase I, Mainstream will optimize the system components and tailor the process towards the most commonly encountered contaminants. In Phase II, a prototype fuel recovery system will built and tested.
