An old and good joke known by most inertial navigation engineers, especially those working on military defense projects.

Turbo Encabulator is another good one.

It is where it is, and it ain't where it ain't.

It seems fairly obvious. Cars, boats and planes know where they are.

quote:

Ever wonder about how a missile knows where it is?

quote:

The missile knows where it is at all times. It knows this because it knows where it isn't. By subtracting where it is from where it isn't, or where it isn't from where it is (whichever is greater), it obtains a difference, or deviation. The guidance subsystem uses deviations to generate corrective commands to drive the missile from a position where it is to a position where it isn't, and arriving at a position where it wasn't, it now is.

may I be excused my brain is full

After the computer's algorithm differentiates the algebraic sum of where it was and should be and calculates the error, what is the tolerance on that error?
