From the timing and synchronizing of stock markets to the accurate tracking of international shipping vessels, GPS and associated navigation systems play a critical role in our modern economic infrastructure. These systems are also used on a daily basis by billions of people for personal navigation, as well as by governments across the globe for defense. Increasingly GPS and other satellite navigation networks present to us their drawbacks and vulnerabilities, However GPS reliance can be reduced by the utilization of Inertial Navigation. Inertial Navigation as applied to a variety of vehicles and users requires the utmost acceleration measurement precision in addition to measurement flexibility. Levitated optomechanical inertial sensors based on optical tweezers offer a promising technology that would enable the proliferation of Inertial Navigation, thereby reducing GPS reliance and increasing navigation independence.
