Derivative information

Navigation information occurs as:

scattered < Activity-ID >.0# or <Activity-ID>.6# files containing time sequential information.
analog physical records, usually electrostatic or photostatic rolls
metadata information about navigation analog paper rolls, inventory of gear, deployment of gear, operation of gear, magnetic tapes and floppies, paper printer listings, and platform movements.
