Abstract: In 1975 the United States Coast Guard began a project to improve the positioning of aids to navigation. This paper describes the traditional positioning methods in comparison with the newly developed analytical technique. The marine sextant remains the basic instrument used in positioning, and horizontal sextant angles are the input to the computer-driven process.
