Paper Abstract

This paper reports the latest development of a miniature gravity gradiometer. This device consists of two pairs of classical spring-mass sensors and microwave displacement detectors. We have completed a set of two collinear accelerometers and report the initial performance characteristics as well as its potential applications to the detection of buried objects. Gravity gradient changes of 1000 Eotvos units were detected using the present two-axis system in a 10-s sampling mode.
