A gravity gradiometer

(57)    Abstract

The present disclosure provides a gravity gradiometer that comprises a detector for detecting a gravity gradient. The detector comprises at least one movable sensing element and that is arranged to generate a signal in response to a change in gravity gradient. The gravity gradiometer also comprises a support structure for supporting the detector in an aircraft and a component that is arranged to reduce transmission of aircraft acceleration to the detector. The at least one movable sensing element and the support structure together are arranged to reduce an influence of an the aircraft acceleration on the signal by a factor of at least when the gravity gradiometer is airborne and exposed to the aircraft acceleration.
