    Re: Pave Diagram / veater Diagram

    The 'Navigator's Newsletter', issue 76, summer 2002, described the
    operation of the Astronomisches Rechengerat ARG1, a device developed for
    the German Luftwaffe in WWII, for the graphical solution of the
    navigational triangle. At first glance, this device seems similar to the
    Favé diagram as both are based on a stereographic projection of the earths
    surface. It would appear that the Favé device needed supporting tables, but
    the ARG1 did not. The Newsletter gives a detailed description of how the
    ARG1 works.
