Aviation fuel is an enduring part of the Air Force energy strategy and our team is dedicated to providing solutions for the energy challenges of today and tomorrow. Technological advances across the defense and commercial aviation industry are laying the groundwork for a fundamental shift in aircraft operation and design in the future. Advances in airframe shape, drag reducing methodologies, and more powerful engines could substantially change the way the Air Force operates today. Benefits would include increased range, loiter-time on station, and reduced tanker demand, resulting in improved combat capability.
By investing in research and development now, we can ensure the Air Force remains resilient and lethal against our adversaries in the future.
