Accurate measurement of time and position has been based on the interrogation of atoms, leading to exquisite lab-based systems with increasingly better performance. Practical measurements in portable systems have been less successful. We will discuss progress towards tactical atomic physics that will have a revolutionary impact for many military and commercial applications.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
