Annotation. The possibilities of measuring the three components of the gravitational gradient on board of the spacecraft using a three-axis laser gradiometer, as well as the possibility of measu­ring the spacecraft gravitational acceleration using signals from the PRARE and DORIS geodetic systems and using navigation receivers of global navigation satellite systems are considered.

Key words: gravitational field, space measuring instruments, gravitational gradient, geodetic systems.
