SATT Test Cell Core

Overview of Services

This rate will provide engine testing services to campus, industry, and military customers. The establishment and start up for this recharge
originated with the “National Test Facility for Fuels and Propulsions Fuel Testing Facility (NaTeF)” research project. The original project was
funded as a result of a "white Pare" proposal through the Department of Defense.

Primary objectives of the project were:

  •  interface the engineering expertise and development directly with application functions and behaviors, provide the requirements data for development of production and sustainability analysis;
  •  provide use data for economic assessments of fuel sources, green implications and sustainability reviews.
