The invention discloses a deployable, inflatable conformable fuel tank assembly constructed to be installed at a certain location on an aircraft and to be retained at that certain location throughout the entire flight operation of the aircraft. The fuel tank assembly is constructed to be movable between a first, deployed aerodynamic configuration in which the assembly can hold a supply of liquid fuel, and a second, stowed aerodynamic configuration in which the exterior surface of the assembly conforms to a surface of the aircraft underlying the assembly....


[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A method of conforming a fuel tank assembly with two different aerodynamic configurations on an aircraft, said method comprising:constructing the assembly with a first, inner, liquid chamber for containing a supply of liquid fuel in a first, aerodynamic deployed configuration of the assembly;constructing the assembly with a second, outer, gas chamber for containing a pressurized volume of gas in the first, aerodynamic deployed configuration of the assembly;incorporating bidirectionally extending structural elements in said sec...
