The paper analyzes the developments in the field of orbital gravigradientometry, which makes it possible to identify the domestic priority in the development of orbital gradiometers. The types of the original GVTT construction diagram are presented. The development of such construction diagram of a gravitational variometer seems to be promising for use on space objects.

Key words: gravitational variometer, types of the original GVTT construction diagram, gravigradientometry.
