|Summary||Fuel distribution and its availability is key to maintain force posture during all phases of a conflict. Given the great power competition (GPC) increasing between the U.S. China and Russia, and a shift to distributed maritime operations, it is important to assess the cost benefit of changing the fuel distribution to a single fuel type. More specifically, looking at the benefit of pooling inventory and simplifying distribution to a unique JP5. NPS proposes to conduct a cost benefit analysis (CBA) of switching entirely or partially to JP5 fuel as opposed to the current multiple fuel types used on ships aircrafts and vehicles. The research will follow standard CBA guidelines as shown in Circular A-94.|
