Abstract : The article describes the first model of the instrument for measuring the gravity acceleration from a ship. The device is a quartz gravimeter with liquid thermal compensation data units based on the utilization of the elastic properties of wound wire. The elastic system (data unit for the change of gravity acceleration) consists of a quartz frame to which a thin (about 100mcm) quartz wire is attached. A pendulum with a mirror 1 is soldered to the center of the wire. The momentum created by the pendulum winds up the wire to an angle of 300-500 degrees.
