PRECOMPUTED CELESTIAL DATA FOR HIGH SPEED AIRCRAFT

Major Robert Sullivan

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Military and commercial aviation is gradually changing from propeller-driven aircraft to the turbojet. The turbojet is capable of speeds and altitudes in excess of 600 mph and 40,000 feet. In order to keep pace with the increased speed of flight, navigators must devise faster means of solving navigational problems. This paper examines celestial navigation procedures used in the past, and introduces a method that promises to speed the solution.
