Expert Advice: The Chip-Scale Combinatorial Atomic Navigator

August 1, 2013By

By Andrei Shkel, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Future breakthroughs in microtechnology for positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) will likely rely on yet-to-be-exploited physics, new materials, highly specialized fabrication technologies, batch assembly techniques, selective wafer-level trimming and polishing, a combination of passive and active calibration techniques strategically implemented right on-chip, and introduction of innovative test technologies. Such microtechnology advances... read more
