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 meterssec to 800 gpm 0.0505 cubic meterssec. 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
