The Petroleum Quality Analysis System PQAS was demonstrated in a recently completed PDRR Program Definition and Risk Reduction phase. The PDRR phase demonstrated several new technologies for testing fuel quality. Over 20 fuel-quality properties were analyzed using these technologies. Since that time, CASCOM Combined Arms Support Command has shortened the list of required tests. This shift in attitude toward performance requirements signals a new responsibility for TARDEC to further refine the list of required tests and consider future requirements.
