The expediency of using aviation gravimetric systems for gravimetric measurements and receiving information about the Earth's gravitational field is proved. An analysis of existing gravimeters of aviation gravimetric systems is done, identified their strengths and weaknesses. Modern perspective developments in the area of designing a new type of aviation gravimeters with higher accuracy and speed than the known ones are considered.

Key words: sensor element, gravimeter, gravity acceleration, gravitational field of the Earth.
