Abstract : Introduction is made of the realization of star light inertial guidance systems and the current status of the development of starlight inertial devices. Among these are included the development and applications of advanced star light sensing devices, quick connect star light inertial systems, and platform type star light inertial systems. In conjunction with this, a brief analysis is made of star light inertial system performance and applicable capabilities. At the same time, introduction is made of the places where quick connect systems and platform star light inertial systems are different. In conjunction with that, difficulties that are met with when option is made for the use of quick connect star light inertial systems are set out. Measurement principles associated with platform type star light inertial systems described in the article are capable, in the same way, of being used with quick connect star light inertial systems.
