Flamsteed, furious at his colleagues, rounded up 300 of the 400 star catalogs that were printed and burned them. He was not willing to put his reputation on the line for work that had not yet been verified. A modern inertial navigation system can determine the local horizontal by leveling and the direction of true North by gyrocompassing. It can even challenge the initial latitude entered by the pilot if it does not match the Earth rate component that is being measured. But to this day an inertial navigator cannot find its initial longitude without human assistance or external aiding.
It is called the quaternion, or "four parameter" method, in which the Cb body frame is determined from the vehiclecarried geographic frame Cv using a single rotation about an axis defined solely by its direction cosines. The rotation angle and the direction cosines define the four parameters of the quaternion. Note that although the computation singularity is thus avoided, the transformation from quaternion parameters to Euler angles for display to the pilot is not possible at 90 deg of pitch. Quaternions are used extensively in the operational flight software and the simulation of highly maneuverable fighter aircraft but are not required for aircraft that seldom, if ever, approach 90 deg of pitch angle in flight.
29) in the next section yield a more complete answer. For rotational motion about the center of mass, the Coriolis Theorem can be applied to the time rate of change of angular momentum hcm = Jcm^b/i (where ycm is the inertial matrix for the aircraft referenced at the center of mass). Then the time rate of change of hcm, as measured in C,-, is equal to the time rate of change of vector Jcm(jJb/i, as measured in Cb, added to the angular velocity ujb/t crossed into JCm^b/i • This expression of the Coriolis Theorem, which results in the applied moment (or torque) to the aircraft about the center of mass, is given by — =— n d?
