Abstract : ILC Dover, after developing two leading candidate coated fabrics for use on the 5,000 barrel collapsible fabric fuel tank, designed and fabricated that fuel tank for testing in the tropics. The tank was built from the polyurethane coated Kevlar fabric. ILC designed high stress compression rings and a wick-proff suction stub for use on the tank. Commercial products were found to be acceptable for all other hardware. (Author)
