Abstract
TYPICAL LOW COST, DENSELY PACKAGED, EXPENDABLE FUEL TANKS ARE DIFFICULT TO ASSEMBLE AND REQUIRE LARGE ASSEMBLY AREAS. THIS WOULD MAKE DEPLOYMENT ON A CARRIER IMPRACTICAL. A TANK DESIGN IS PROPOSED THAT COLLAPSES INTO 1/3 THE VOLUME OF ITS DEPLOYED VOLUME AND CAN BE ASSEMBLED IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR. MANUFACTURING METHODS TO ACHIEVE SIGNIFICANT COST REDUCTIONS ARE INVESTIGATED.
