And the navigation systems for those Trident/Poseidon missiles?

One hopes they can't be hijacked by some kid on the ground messing with GPS-type signals.

Or that the inertial on-board systems are damned accurate.

Or that the smaller midshipmen can fit inside the missile while using the sextant and peering out through the 1x1cm quartz window.
