Liquid Measurement Systems (LMS) of Georgia, Vermont, provides fuel-management and -gauging systems for rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft for both the commercial and military sectors. The company designs, certifies, and makes electromechanical systems and components with light weight, safety, accuracy, and value in mind. The manufacturer is also innovating and leveraging its expertise to enter the growing hybrid-electric and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market sectors.
Products and Services
LMS’s products include carbon composite fuel probes, digital fuel-quantity indicators, signal conditioners, and external-refuel preselect panels. The company also works with its clients to design and manufacture custom solutions for individual customer needs, including supporting prototype designs.
Operating from its commitment to safety, quality, accuracy, and innovation, LMS credits its success to its collaborative approach with customers. The company works closely with clients as early as possible in requirements development to produce superior system designs and encourage innovative approaches to complex challenges. The result, LMS says, is high-quality solutions on budget and on schedule.
Backed by a team of engineering, assembly, quality assurance, and support experts, LMS serves some of the world’s largest and most innovative OEMs and tier 1 integrators with designs intended to meet or exceed the most demanding commercial, government, and military requirements.
LMS delivers 2,200 units per calendar year with a more than 99% on-time delivery track record, according to the company.
Earlier this year, LMS won a contract to design, develop, qualify, and deliver the fuel quantity indicating system (FQIS) for Stratolaunch’s Talon-A hypersonic flying testbed. The Talon-A is being designed as a flexible, fully reusable, autonomous vehicle that, flying at speeds up to Mach 6, will provide a reliable test environment for hypersonic research and experiments to enable operational missions in the future.
Part 145 Certification
In May 2021, LMS announced that its facility in Vermont was awarded Part 145 repair station certification by the FAA. This new capability helps support the company’s design and manufacturing business, certifying that the hardware it repairs is fit for “return to service” and can be legally installed on an aircraft.
The firm is also AS9100 certified.
LMS is dedicated to protecting the environment, its employees, and the community by continually seeking new ways to improve its environmental business practices.
The company is reducing its impact on the local and global environments by reducing solid waste through recycling and purchasing recycled products, buying locally whenever possible, reducing its use of toxic products, and conserving energy, water, and other natural resources.
