Abstract:

This report examines certain aspects of the military use of LH2 as an alternate fuel for use in large military aircraft. These aspects include availability, cost, implications for aircraft design, mission capability, safety, and fuel tank vulnerability in a military threat environment. It is concluded that vulnerability in a military threat environment is the major topic which requires further attention in a comprehensive manner although some additional investigation will also be required in other topical areas.
