    Navigation News on inertial / stellar navigation.
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2005 Oct 9, 12:00 +0100

    "Navigation News" is the chatty journal of the Royal Institute of
    Navigation, which appears in alternate months. Don't confuse it with their
    more formal and academic "The Journal of Navigation", which appears three
    times a year.
    The following item, from the September / October issue of 2005, may be of
    some interest.
    "Northrop Grumman has been selected by the US Air Force to provide 30
    high-accuracy LN-120G stellar navigation systems for the RC-135 family of
    recannaissance aircraft., The Northrop Grumman LN- 120G is a GPS augmented
    stellar navigation system that tracks stars during the day and night. Once
    the LN- 120G locates a star, it refines the positioning information
    provided by the inertial-navigation systems of the aircraft. Repeating this
    process enables the LN- 120G to provide heading information accurate to 20
    arc seconds- the highest accuracy available in the world."
