Abstract : The bulk fuel needs of a Marine Amphibious Force (MAF) require that the overland transfer capability of the Amphibious Assault Fuel System (AAFS) be increased from 600 gpm (0.0379 cubic meters/sec) to 800 gpm (0.0505 cubic meters/sec). Different pump and hose line combinations are assessed in terms of technical and operational considerations, logistic burden, procurement costs, reliability and life cycle costs. (Author)
