BACKGROUND

Working closely with the Petroleum Committee, this Technical Group will build upon previous “fuel”-related activities of the NATO RTO such as AVT-ET-076 (2006), AVT-159 (2008-2011), and most recently AVT-ET-128 (2012) to evaluate the opportunities and threats posed by emerging synthetic fuel blends on NATO vehicles and systems (air, land, and naval).

OBJECTIVES

To identify and prioritize the opportunities and threats for vehicles (air, land, and naval), and their equipment associated with the introduction of synthetic fuels and their blends. A risk-matrix methodology will be used to rank their impact on vehicle operation and mission, as well as on hardware and maintenance characteristics.

TOPICS

1. Scope of synthetic fuels considered includes FT-SPK, HVO, HEFA-SPK and others. 2. Impact of blending synthetic components on fuel specifications and properties (e.g. calorific value, density, cetane number, etc.) will be considered for ground diesel (F
