Microbial Synthesis of Pinene - ACS Synthetic Biology (ACS Publications)
Apparently a new way to make a biofuel precursor for a JP-10 analog. JP-10 is allegedly pretty expensive ($25/gallon)...

Fueling the Fleet, Navy Looks to the Seas - U.S. Naval Research Laboratory
Pretty compact skid mounted synthetic jet fuel maker. Unfortunately, this is really only practical with an all electric ship/navy, particular ones powered by nuclear power. Well, unless ports allow docked oilers/ tankers to consume huge amounts of shore power...
