Abstract : In June 2013 TARDEC evaluated an online light obscuration particle counter plumbed into a Fuel System Supply Point (FSSP) in conjunction with the Effective Energy for Expeditionary Operations Limited Objective Experiment (E2X LOE) at Fort A.P. Hill during the 2014 Quartermaster Liquid Logistics Exercise (QLLEX '14), to determine if air entrained in the fuel during the FSSP operation would affect the particle counter operation.
