    Yes, I am aware of that.  Unfortunately none of them have ever reached production.
     
    I wonder what kind of silicon sensors exist that act as artificial horizons, and what kind measure angles, and how accurately?  The digital compasses recently referred to are accurate to 2 degrees.  For a sextant the angle needs to be measured to a few seconds of arc to be competitive.

    Dan,

    Bruce Bauer mentions sextants like the Plath on pages 157 to 161 of "The Sextant Handbook" (2nd edition).
