Abstract: An external calibration technique for SIM involves measurement of calibration stars whose positions must already be known to an accuracy of 2 milliarcseconds. We demonstrate a procedure that effectively "bootstraps" calibration star positions from an ab initio catalog to the required accuracy by observing them with the uncalibrated SIM instrument.
