Abstract : The state of development of advanced timing systems at NIST is described. The paper presents work on cesium and rubidium frequency standards, stored-ion frequency standards, diode lasers used to pump such standards, time transfer, and methods for characterizing clocks, oscillators and time distribution systems. The emphasis is on NIST-developed technology rather than the general state of the art in this field.
