Abstract:

This report summarizes work performed by the General Electric Company on contract N62269-78-C-0433 to design, fabricate and test a fuel quantity Signal Conditioning Unit. This equipment was designed, fabricated, integrated with other components and tested on schedule. The results of the test program demonstrates that the concept of using a microprocessor to compute fuel mass to Class III gauging accuracies, based on inputs from linear acoustic probes and a densitometer, is valid.
