Until 2000, was Director of Astrometry of the . Naval Observatory, and a Visiting Professor at the University of Maryland. Jean Kovalevsky is an Associate (retired) Astronomer of the Centre de Recherches et d'Etudes Geodynamiques et Astronomiques (CERGA), at the Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur, France. He is President of the International Committee of Weights and Measures and a member of the French Academy of Sciences.

Jean Kovalevsky, P. Kenneth Seidelmann. Astrometry encompasses all that is necessary to provide the positions and motions of celestial bodies. This includes observational techniques, instrumentation, processing and analysis of observational data, reference systems and frames, and the resulting astronomical phenomena. Astrometry is fundamental to all other fields of astronomy, from the pointing of telescopes, to navigation and guidance systems, to distance and motion determinations for astrophysics

Jean Kovalevsky, P. Astrometry encompasses all that is necessary to measure the positions and motions of celestial bodies: observational techniques, instrumentation, processing and analysis of observational data, and reference systems and frames, as well as the resulting astronomical phenomena. It is fundamental to all other fields of astronomy, from the focusing of telescopes to navigation and guidance systems and distance and motion determinations for astrophysics.

Astrometry encompasses all that is necessary to measure the positions and motions of celestial bodies: observational techniques, instrumentation, processing and analysis of observational data, and reference systems and frames, as well as the resulting astronomical phenomena. It is fundamental to all other fields of astronomy, from the focusing of telescopes to navigation and guidance systems and distance and motion determinations for astrophysics. Starting from basic principles, this work provides the principles of astrometry at milli- and micro-arcsecond accuracies and will be an invaluable reference for graduate students and research astronomers.
