Abstract
The paper provides a description of the analysis which was used to determine the potential benefits to be derived from the use of a high energy density fuel. Mission analyses include discussions which cover fighter - CF-18, maritime surveillance - CP-140 Aurora, and tankers - CC-137, and KC-130, aircraft. The paper then discusses the fuel characteristics which were perceived to have a potential impact on aircraft or engine military performance. The results of engine component rig tests are then briefly discussed to demonstrate how critical fuel blend factors were evaluated to ensure that an optimal energy/performance was determined. Finally a description is provided on testing objectives for the subsequent full scale engine performance and durability testing as well as an outline of the final flight certification program for the High Density Fuel (HDF).
