    Highly Accurate Celestial Nav Algorithms?
    From: Dan Allen
    Date: 1997 Oct 29, 2:53 PM

    From the US Naval Observatory pages at
    
    http://aa.usno.navy.mil/AA/
    
    in their research pages they mention one of their programs:
    
    	Celestial Navigation
    
    	As part of a Navy software project, new algorithms for celestial
    navigation have been developed. Given suitably accurate observing systems,
    these algorithms would provide sight reduction and positional fixes at the
    one arcsecond (30 meter) level of precision.
    
    Interesting!  Does anyone on this list know anything more about these "new
    algorithms"?
