The report presents information thought to be necessary in establishing an Air Force Policy on aircraft engine pollution. The reasons that different pollutants are emitted is discussed. Relevance of this problem to the Air Force is also investigated. Actions which may be taken to reduce pollutants are presented in terms of technology level current, mid-term, and advanced technology. Operation, reliability and maintainability, implementation and cost impacts are evaluated for each of the technology levels. The EPA standards and possible use by the Air Force are discussed. Air Force goals, which differ from the EPA standards in method of specification, are developed. These goals will permit control technology application without influencing basic engine design parameters or performance. The cost to meet these goals is established for current AF systems.
