Force Projection Technology (FPT):
Quality surveillance testing of bulk fuels including jet fuel, aviation (AV) gas, automotive gasoline, diesel fuel, burner fuel, kerosene, E-85, and bio-diesels. APL tests other products such as lubricating oils, greases, hydraulic fluids, gear oils, engine coolants and select other products.
Conducts strength and durability testing as well as evaluation of bridging components, subassemblies, and systems in simulated environments.
Conducts research, development, testing, analysis, and investigation of ground system fluids and lubricates. For instance; fluid combustion, volatility, physical / elemental properties, stability, cleanliness, tribology, etc.
Conducts military specific water treatment testing to resolve field issues, evaluates new components and methods, research emerging technologies, and provides an environment to test relevant water treatment and handling solutions in order to evaluate equipment.
