Abstract. Possible application of a cluster of small-sized spacecraft to detect parameters of the Earth’s gravitational field is considered. The analyzed approach is based on the use of onboard receivers of Global Satellite Navigation Signals.
Keywords: small-sized spacecraft, the parameters of the Earth’s gravitational field, space gravimeter, space gradiometer
