Because of increased mechanization, petroleum supply has become one of the major problems of military logistics, especially in Army operations where small, dispersed energy demands often necessitate an extensive, vulnerable fuel supply complex. The nuclear powered energy depot, conceived as a potential solution to the problem, will utilize a nuclear reactor to produce a chemical fuel for vehicle and aircraft engines. The energy depot, logistically independent for a year, would operate with or near the consumer in the field and considerably broaden Army capabilities.
