What is being done?
DEFINE MICROBIAL PRESENCE IN FUEL TANKS
QUALIFY COATINGS & MATERIALS
DEVELOP NEW PROTOCOLS
SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES
Objectives of MICTEST:
- Determine antimicrobial properties by assessing bio-contamination levels
- Qualify the degradation of materials in aircraft fuel systems
- Characterize the performance of functionalized coatings
- Evaluate the effect of biocontamination on materials and coatings and vice versa
