A Study on the Effect Produced by Instrumental Error of Automated Astronomical System on Landmark Azimuth Accuracy

Abstract

The paper analyzes how random and systematic components of instrumental error of an automated astronomical system affect the accuracy of the landmark astronomical azimuth. The obtained results can be applied to construct the error mathematical model and to define the mutual orientation of the body axes when designing the system.
