    The paper presents a review of the principles and state of the art in instrumentation used to make large scale measurements within aerospace assembly. The ability to measure large artefacts accurately is a key enabling technology to improve quality and facilitate automation. Particular emphasis is placed on issues of uncertainty with the importance of acceptance criteria explained and verification standards compared and discussed. The fundamental technologies deployed are explained including laser trackers, indoor GPS and photogrammetry. Commercially available systems are compared in terms of uncertainty, range and deployment related issues.
