This thesis presents the development of a helicopter gross weight calculator. Required qualities for aircraft system components such as durability, reliability and low weight are met using an LSI micro-processor. The prototype system which was developed weighs approximately four pounds and has approximate dimensions of 7" X 5" X 1/2". The cost estimate for the system is less than $350. The calculator solution is based on the solution technique currently being used by Naval Aviators which is obtained from nomo-graphs in the aircraft NATOPS Manual. Minor modifications are required to make this system applicable to different helicopter types. A listing of the calculator program and a discussion of the prototype's operation are included.
