In science:

For each QSO matching the criteria above, all of the NEAT images covering its coordinates were retrieved from long-term storage on the NERSC HPSS system (see Chapter 3) and and calibrated against the USNO-A1.0 catalog (Monet et al. 1996) “R”-band magnitudes.
Rates and Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae
To this end, the BJ magnitudes of the stars in our sample given in the USNO B1.0 catalogue were collected, and are believed to be accurate to ± 0.3 magnitudes (Monet et al. 2003).
Five WC9 stars discovered in the AAO/UKST H-alpha Survey

SDSS Pre-Burst Observations of Recent Gamma-Ray Burst Fields
Proper motions in these studies are derived using positions from the USNO-B catalog (Monet et al. 2003) and SDSS (Munn et al. 2004, 2008), or from SDSS-only data (Bramich et al. 2008).
The 3D Velocity Structure of the Thick Disk from SPM4 and RAVE DR2
The USNO-B Catalog reaches about five magnitudes fainter, and can be put on the HIPPARCOS/Tycho reference system, but the accuracies of individual proper motions will be only ∼ 8 mas/yr (Monet 1997), making them of modest value for the study of the Galactic halo.
