Origins and Primary Areas of Navigation, Continued Celestial Navigation How  is  this  accomplished?  Measurements  are  taken  of  the  height  above the  horizon  of  a  celestial  body.  The  measurement  or  sight,  as  it  is commonly  referred  to,  is  then  reduced  by  a  mathematical  procedure. The  results  are  then  plotted  on  the  chart  to  determine  position  (fig.  1-2). Celestial  navigation  will  be  covered  in  greater  detail  in  chapters  6  and  9. Radionavigation Radionavigation  may  be  defined  as  the  determination  of  position  by  the use  of  radio  waves.  There  are  several  types  of  systems  in  use  today. From  the  now  seldom  used  Radio  Direction  Finder  (RDF)  to  the  latest satellite  navigation  system,  what  they  all  have  in  common  is  that  they use  radio  waves.  This  area  of  navigation  is  now  sometimes  referred  to as  electronic  navigation. This  subject  matter  will  be  covered  in  greater detail  in  chapter  8. Figure  1-2.  Sextant  angle  and  sample  3  star  fix. 1-5
