This briefing TOR is an invited paper presented at SPIE Photonics West, Optical and Quantum Sensing and Precision Metrology II , paper 12016-7, January 22, 2022, San Francisco, CA. Approved for public release. OTR-2022-00052 In this talk, we will give an overview on the research activities in atomic sensing at The Aerospace Corporation. Specifically, we will discuss our latest experimental results of a cold Cs atom interferometer. The portability of the physics package makes it suitable for implementing atom interferometry with various interrogation configurations and relative orientations. In addition, we will also report the progress on experiments of Cs Rydberg atoms for RF E-field sensing. Our work is aimed at investigating the engineering and atomic physics limitations to the devices SWaP and reliability.
