This paper describes the current development of a noncryogenic gravity gradiometer for future use on board the tethered satellite system (TSS). The paper also proposes a way of testing a single‐axis prototype of such an instrument that makes use of the free‐fall technique in vacuum. This gravity gradiometer has a design sensitivity of the order of 10−2 EU (1 EU =Eotvos Unit=10−9 ms−2/m) in 10‐s integration time. Because of the small size and light weight, a noncryogenic gravity gradiometer is a… Expand
