    Usually, but not in this case. It's for military use only. STELLA was developed by the US Naval Observatory with input from sea-going USN navigators. But there is nothing significant in it that you could not find in commercially available software and even freeware software. If you want to learn more about it, I remember reading somewhere that the latest edition of "Dutton" has some instruction on clearing sights with STELLA.
    And no, I had nothing to do with the STELLA project :-). But I, and probably half the people on this list, could probably produce a functionally equivalent product without a great deal of effort. And then we could each sell that product to... who... each other?? :-)
    42.0N 87.7W, or 41.4N 72.1W.
