Abstract:
As information is going to be a strategic weapon in all future warfare, every country is taking giant steps to access the accurate information about the combat situation so that right decision is taken at right timeA Battle Tank can effectively annihilate the enemy targets, until it has Ammunition Stocks and can successfully maneuver through the enemy locations until the fuel lasts, thus replenishing the same is a foremost important winning factor in war. So, the Information about the exact quantity of Fuel, Ammunition available in the Fighting vehicle (Tanks) at any point of time dictates its deployability into the deeper enemy territories.Worldwide, all Main Battle Tanks (MBT), are fitted with a capacitance based fuel level indicating system. The difficulty is that it can indicate only the volume of a particular fuel tank to which it is fitted, where as a MBT may have many fuel tanks, to utilize the space wherever possible.This paper discusses the possible near practical solution, to resolve this issue. So that fuel management in battle field could be done efficiently & effectively.
