comment How is a “conformal latitude” used in ellipsoidal stereographic projections?
After a long search, I've found the description of this specific projection. It's used by radar systems, and the document can be found on dtic.mil/cgi-bin/…

Also, in our code the R variable is called "conformal radius".

comment How is a “conformal latitude” used in ellipsoidal stereographic projections?
Thanks whuber. So, if I correctly understand, the factors that multiply r_eq are a math to calculate the scale factor (Ko)? The term "null distortion" is a translation (in the code I'm using, the variable names are in portuguese). Maybe somewhere else it does have a different name.
