Frequency combs can support a dizzying array of precision measurement applications.  However, until recently, high-performance combs have been limited to the well-controlled optical laboratory limiting them from reaching their full potential.  I will present our development of a robust optically coherent all-pm-fiber frequency comb.  In addition, I will discuss the use of combs for high-accuracy time-transfer and precision molecular spectroscopy and the implications of a robust comb for these applications.
