    Soviet navy emergency navigation manual (Pub.9049)
    From: Tony Oz

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    For those who are interested in the emergency navigation topic - here is a scan of the document named "The recommendations for the astronavigation in case of a fault with technical means of navigation or if sailing a life raft" by USSR's MoD, 1983, publication 9049. (In Russian)

    Unlike some English materials on this topic - the document is for persons familiar with the astronavigation.

    I scanned everythig that fitted in my A4 scan device, I had to leave out several diagrams of bigger size: the sunrise/sunset diagram versus latitude and date, the daytime duration versus latitude and date, the Kavrayskiy's circular diagram for solving spherical trig problems (that one is a pity - the diagram is VERY interesting in its' own right, worth a separate discussion).

    On the funnier side of the document - it mentions the Cruiserfix tool! :)

    Warm regards and Season's Greetings,

    Tony
