Article

The development and experimental studies of a new gravimetric sensor intended for use in the mobile Chekan gravimeters are discussed. The design of the gravimetric sensor and its major components are described. Data from calibration and tests of the gravimeter in a climate chamber are analyzed. The experimental data show that the instrumental error of this gravimetric sensor is significantly lower than that of its earlier analog.
