Abstract:

The primary goal of the current gravity gradiometer research at Stanford has been to establish the feasibility of using a gravity gradiometer with 1 E accuracy, as the primary sensor in various applications. The two applications considered here in detail are geodesy missions and inertial navigation systems. Preliminary sections on gravity models and gravity gradiometer bias estimation are also included.
