Robertson crashworthy fuel systems


Robertson offers a wide range of fuel containment systems – proven in battle by all branches of the U.S. military – to:

  • Extend the reach of freedom by safely and easily adding critical, crashworthy auxiliary fuel tanks when needed
  • Meet and exceed military crashworthy requirements on the battlefield
  • Self-seal against ballistic threats ranging from 7.62mm, .50 caliber and 20mm High-Explosive Incendiary (HEI) rounds
  • Prevent post-crash fires

Robertson crashworthy range-extension fuel systems are available in a variety of capacities from 30 gallons to 800 gallons.


In the 1960s, our founder, Dr. S. Harry Robertson, pioneered the development of crashworthy fuel systems. Dramatic improvements in rotorcraft post-incident fire suppression from the Vietnam era to today are due in large part to fuel containment. Recognizing the same need for safety on the ground, Robertson expanded its efforts to ground systems in 2010. Robertson now drives enhanced ground systems survivability.

Today, Robertson continues Dr. Robertson’s passion for company-funded research to design, develop, deliver and sustain fuel containment systems that enhance the survivability of aircraft and ground vehicles. Robertson is proud that it has never accepted any government or customer development funding.
