ABSTRACT

More Capable Warfighting Through Reduced Fuel Burden   [open pdf - 1MB]

The task force reviewed approximately 100 current and future technology solutions and sought to understand DoD's fuel requirements and its end-to-end fuel delivery processes. The task force then turned its attention to understanding DoD's policy on energy efficiency and the processes for requiring and acquiring more efficient platforms and systems. The task force also investigated the environmental impacts of fossil fuel use, including global climate change. The task force made the following significant Findings during the course of its work. Although significant warfighting, logistics and cost benefits occur when weapons systems are made more fuel-efficient, these benefits are not valued or emphasized in the DoD requirements and acquisition processes
