One of the most promising directions in the development of modern navigation is the development of systems based on measuring the parameters of the Earth’s gravitational field. Optical resonators with whispering gallery modes as a sensitive element of a gravimeter are a promising physical basis for developing gravitational field sensors. The article provides an overview of the work of scientific groups investigating the possibility of developing equipment on the basis of optical resonators with whispering gallery waves for application in navigation devices by gravitational field.

Key words: gravitational field, optical resonators, whispering gallery modes, mobile gravimeters, accelerometers.
