The report is the Final Technical Report for Contract No. N62269-71-C-0392 entitled Solid State Vertical Scale Aircraft Engine Performance Indicator Set. A program is reported which involves the design, fabrication and testing of two sets of solid state engine instruments. Each set consists of three instruments which display two channels of Exhaust Gas Temperature EGT, Percent of Engine Fan Speed RPM and Rate of Fuel Flow FF. This equipment receives the appropriate sensor information from the actual sensors and transmitters for the A6A aircraft. The display media is gallium arsenide phosphide LEDS emitting a red colored light. The display presentation gives bar graph and numerical readout information. Special techniques were utilized in the fabrication of the scale plates in order to obtain sufficient contrast ehnancement. Modified author abstract
