A gravity gradiometry mission was proposed to reach progress in high resolution gravity field determination. It is well known that a low orbiter will be launched in the late nineties. ARISTOTELES will carry a payload consisting of a two-axis gradiometer and a GPS receiver. It is intended to place ARISTOTELES in a near polar orbit of about 200 km height.
