Measurement of the gradient of the gravitational acceleration from a satellite platform is likely to provide the next improvement in knowledge of the Earth's gravity field after the upcoming Geopotential Research Mission (GRM). Observations from the subsatellite of a Tethered Satellite System (TSS) would increase sensitivity and resolution due to the low altitude possible. However, the TSS is a dynamically "noisy" system and would be perturbed by atmospheric drag fluctuations. The dynamic noise… Expand
