TECHNIQUES FOR OBSERVING STARLIGHT ATMOSPHERIC REFRACTION

Robert L. White

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The next paper presents a novel and relatively simple technique for satellite observations of starlight refraction near the earth’s horizon that could have significant merit in satellite navigation. Although that paper does not discuss the navigation accuracy of the observations, past studies indicate that refraction observations can yield a satellite navigation accuracy as good as 50 m [1}.
