A method and system for measuring the mass quantity and volume of fuel in an aircraft fuel tank is disclosed. A pressure assembly (124) is disposed proximate the lowest portion of each fuel tank on an aircraft (60), with respect to a wing tank (100). The pressure sensor assembly includes a temperature probe (126) having a plurality of temperature sensors (128) mounted therein at spaced apart elevations within the fuel tank. Also included is an attitude sensor (150) in which are provided a roll sensor (156) and a pitch sensor (160) for respectively determ...
A system for determining a quantity of a liquid within a container, said container having a shape, said liquid having as a property a pressure, a volume, a temperature, a height, a mass, and a surface, said surface having an orientation, the system comprising: (a) a pressure sensor disposed proximate a lower portion of the container, said pressure sensor producing a signal indicative of the pressure of the liquid at the pressure sensor; (b) a plurality of temperature sensors disposed at a plurality of different elevations within the liquid, each temperat...
