Abstract:

The vulnerability of combat vehicles to catastrophic fuel fires is of continuing major concern to the US Army. An Army Scientific Advisory Panel Ad Hoc Group was organized to review the present Army Fire-Safe Fuel program and provide guidance for future research and development efforts in this area. The group advises long-term basic research, environmental impact and chronic toxicity programs be undertaken. Additionally, physical fuels management efforts, corrosionmaterial influence, and involvement of DARPA should be pursued. Extensive bibliography is included. Author
