AbstractThis strain gauge bridge was developed early in 1942 by the Radio Branch at the request of the Aeronautical Engineering Department of the National Research Council. It was neither intended as a prototype, nor as a competitor in the commercial field. With a storage battery for filament and dry batteries for plate voltage, it is compact enough and sufficiently rugged of operation in an aircraft in flight. Its usable sensitivity is roughly six times that of the Baldwin Southwark Strain Gauge Bridge, #SR-4, and about fifteen times that of a standard d-c galvanometer type bridge. The reading is direct and linear with strain.
