UTC wins Airbus fuel gauging system contract

Airbus has selected UTC Aerospace Systems to supply a common fuel gauging system for its single-aisle aircraft. It currently provides the full fuel gauging system for the A321, with the new contract adding the A319, A320 and A320neo platforms. Initial production hardware deliveries will begin in Q1, 2014. The system was designed and will be produced by UTC’s Sensors & Integrated Systems team in Vergennes, Vermont, US. The Airbus single-aisle aircraft common fuel system has successfully completed fit check and system demonstration tests. Critical design review for the new system will be conducted in July 2013.
