We propose a two year program to develop an atomic vector magnetometer to replace standard commercial fluxgate magnetometers in use by the US Navy. Thousands of fluxgate magnetometers are used to measure ship magnetic signatures and they are often limited by low frequency drift. An vector magnetometer based on atomic spin will have significantly improved drift. The alkali metal atomic vector magnetometer we propose to develop has a focus on performance, simplicity, reliability, and long service lifetime: at least 10 years in operation.
