This report lays the groundwork for further development of a microcomputer that provides full celestial navigation capability. The physical design specifications and design philosophy are investigated. The fix algorithm which allows determination of position without the use of H.O. Publications is implemented in the BASIC language. The application of microcomputer technology to devices of this nature brings to light the need for an information distribution system. Thoughts on a system of this purpose are presented.
