Abstract : The application of Kalman (Linear Least Squares Recursive) filtering to the estimation of fuel quantity and fuel rate for fighter aircraft is discussed. Error analyses are presented for the resultant filter. The 'blending' of quantity and rate information is shown to offer a tradeoff between required system accuracies and individual sensor accuracies. (Author)
