UNAMBIGUOUS TWO BODY FIX METHODS DERIVED FROM CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC PRINCIPLES

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Three methods for obtaining a two body fix are presented. For practical use a calculator with magnetic card capacity is necessary. Advantages of the methods are: One simple rule covering all positions is sufficient to avoid ambiguity, the methods can be used in all positions, an approximate position is not necessary, and the fix is calculated directly. One method employs rotation of a spherical triangle and two methods are based on vector calculation.
